Hate crime and hate speech motivated by racism, xenophobia, religious intolerance, homophobia, transphobia and disablism are a daily reality in Europe. However, most countries do not effectively monitor hate crimes or take the necessary steps to counteract it. Nor are victims provided with essential support. The Facing Facts Online training on hate crime offers the opportunity to learn how to identify, monitor and counter hate crime with support from experienced tutors and practitioners in the field.
