Project „IRIS – Improved response to intolerance through research, strategic advocacy, and training“

Members of which groups are most often victimized by hate crimes? What criminal offenses are most prevalent in this group of offenses? How to define hate misdemeanours? What are examples of good practice, and what are the problems and inconsistencies in the prosecution of hate crime cases? To what extent are available mechanisms for the protection of victims’ rights used in the conduct of the police and judicial authorities?

These are just some of the questions we have endeavoured to answers to through the implementation of the project ” IRIS – Improved response to intolerance through research, strategic advocacy, and training”.
The results of the research are presented in the final research report entitled Hate Crime in Croatia – Empirical Research of Cases from the Period 2013 – 2018.
Based on the results of research and stakeholder consultations, Recommendations for the Improvement of Response to Hate Crimes and Recommendations for Improving Cooperation between CSOs, Police and the Judiciary were developed and are available at the following links:
