Annual Report on Hate Crime in 2019

This report is the outcome of the “Advancing Human Rights” project which was financially supported by the OSCE Mission to Skopje, and was conducted in the period from 1 January to 31 December 2019.

The project aimed to tackle the issue of hate crime and hate speech through improved legislation, increasing public awareness, building the capacities of criminal justice agencies and registering bias incidents. More specifically, this report is designed to serve as an indicator of the scope, nature and frequency of hate crimes perpetrated in the country.
