The policy brief identifies gaps in policy related to hate crime victim support and makes recommendations to the participating States of the OSCE that can also be useful for the international policy community. The brief is designed for decision- and policymakers, advisers and analysts at the national, regional and international levels who are responsible for designing, improving and providing protection and support services for victims of hate crime.

This policy brief condenses the knowledge and key findings of the Enhancing Stakeholder Awareness and Resources for Hate Crime Victim Support (EStAR) project, implemented by the Organization for Security and Co-operation in Europe (OSCE) Office for Democratic Institutions and Human Rights (ODIHR), in partnership with the Association of Counseling Centers for Victims of Right-Wing, Racist, and Antisemitic Violence in Germany (VBRG).
