Empowering and Supporting Victims of Anti-LGBT Hate Crimes
The issue of anti-LGBT hate crime has increasingly been recognized by international organizations (IGOs), as well as many governments across Europe. Despite this, trans-border efforts to tackle this phenomenon are yet to be cohesively developed. In order to successfully combat it, an effective multiagency response, addressing both underreporting and the provision of accessible victim support services, is needed.
Objectives of the project:
- To increase the number of dedicated front line reporting centers by building capacity of civil society and official partners on local and national levels.
- To improve the access to specialized support by building capacity of victim support service providers.
- To share good practices, strengthen cross-border and multi-agency partnership.
- To raise awareness and empower victims.
- Research about underreporting Anti-LGBT hate crimes, supporting needs of victims, needs assessment and best practices.
- Creation of a pool of international trainers.
- Exchange of best practices across Europe.
- Awareness campaign.
- Dissemination activities such as international conference, info-packs and editing books.
