Fundamental rights conference 2013 - Combating hate crime in the EU

The EEA and Norway Grants are a key partner of this year’s Fundamental Rights Conference - a high level annual event, organised by the European Union Agency for Fundamental Rights (FRA).The 2013 conference, taking place 12-13 November and hosted in cooperation with the Lithuanian Presidency of the Council of the EU, is focusing on the issue of ‘Combating hate crime in the EU’.

The event will bring together over 300 policy makers and practitioners from the EU as well as national levels, among them representatives from EU institutions and bodies, international organisations, national governments and parliaments, law enforcement, civil society and many more.

Conference discussions will build on FRA’s reports on Making hate-crime visible in the European Union: acknowledging victims’ rights, and ‘Minorities as victims of crime (EU-MIDIS Data in Focus 6)’, as well as on findings of FRA’s EU-LGBT and antisemitism surveys, among others.
