UntitledText published on web portal dnevno.ba.

Launched in September, this website was created to improve access to the information which ODIHR collects on hate crimes for OSCE participating States, civil society, the media and the public in general. Along with providing the data included in previous annual reports, the website allows users to search for data by country. Unfortunately this data show that people continue to be targeted by hate crimes across the region. Civil society plays a crucial role in hate crime reporting by complementing and contextualizing official figures and, sometimes, revealing gaps in official reporting. ODIHR work closely with civil society, as well as with international organizations, to help in improvement hate crime reporting.
