STAND-UP seminar “Against Hate Crime” at the European Parliament in Brussels

On the 28th and 29th of September partner representatives of the EU funded project “STAND UP: Standing up against fight in the EU” organized a seminar 'Against Hate Crime' in the European Parliament in Brussels.

The European Public Law Organization as a partner in the project participated to the event whose aim was to find a common European definition of 'hate crime' and to analyse measures that can counter hate speech.

During the seminar, project partners, experts from the legal, law enforcement, CSO (civil society organisations), NGO and policy-makers from different European countries were brought together, addressing an overview of the results obtained in the focus groups developed by the project on hate crime and hate speech in Greece, Italy and Spain as well as a proposal for standardised reporting procedures, in the framework of multi-agency cooperation and the highest-level victim assistance model.
