Against Hate - Guidebook of good practices in combating hate crimes and hate speech
This guidebook aims to systemize existing knowledge and practices into one comprehensive resource that can serve as a reference point for future activities in the area of combating hate speech and hate crimes. It is a result of a systematic, yearlong monitoring and information gathering from relevant stakeholders, including civil society organisations, institutions and the academic community across the EU engaged in hate speech and hate crime issues. Although comprehensive, the guidebook does not cover all the practices countering hate speech and hate crimes implemented in the EU Member States, but is rather a choice of existing practices that were identified based on selection criteria we applied.
Project Against Hate strengthens measures to combat hate crimes and hate speech. The project focuses on the development of hate crime reporting, on the enhancement of the capacity of the law enforcement, prosecutors and judges to act against hate crimes and hate speech and on the development of support services for victims of hate crimes.

Ministry of Justice of the Republic of Finland (lead in the project)
