In 2015, Association for Democratic Initiatives Sarajevo continues with the third year of implementation of the project “Fighting against Hate Speech and Hate Crime”. The goal is to strenghten capacities of CSOs when it comes to monitoring and reporting hate crime cases, increase the pressure on local authorities, and increase the level of information and public awareness regarding understanding the importance of effective prosecution of crimes, as well as punishing hate crimes. In 2015, we will conduct the following activities: info sessions, public speakings, monitoring of court trials that take into account hate crimes and hate speech crimes, as well as mapping of these cases.
The implementation period of the project: February 1, 2015 – December 31, 2015
The project is being implemented from 2013 under auspice of international organization for protection of human rights Civil Rights Defenders.
