What is hate crime

Hate crimes are criminal acts motivated by bias or prejudice towards particular groups of people. To be considered a hate crime, the offence must meet two criteria. The first is that the act constitutes an offence under criminal law. Secondly, the act must have been motivated by bias.


This website presents information from OSCE participating States, civil society and inter-governmental organizations about hate crime. Information is categorised by the bias motivations OSCE/ODIHR has been mandated to report on by participating States.
