FRA: Hate crime is a reality in the EU

On 27 November 2012, the European Union Agency for Fundamental Rights (FRA) has published two new reports underlining that hate crime is a daily reality in the EU today. The reports highlight the need for the EU and Member States to make hate crimes more visible and hold perpetrators to account in order to better combat such crime. Both FRA reports look at hate crime from the perspective of victims’ rights.

Through different reports written to FRA both Marianne Meiorg and Kari Käsper from the Estonian Human Rights Centre have  contributed for the completion of the report.

It is important to protect everyone’s human rights, because it helps to keep stability and peace in the society. There are many challenges for protection of human rights in Estonia: intolerance has really come out of the closet. Bad things happen when good people are too passive, but together we can make a change.
