Welcome to HateCrime.fyi: A Spotlight on LGBTQ+ Hate Crimes in Europe and Russia

Empowering Change Through Awareness

Welcome to HateCrime.fyi, a trusted source for illuminating the alarming realities of hate crimes perpetrated against LGBTQ+ individuals in Europe and Russia. We are more than just a website; we are a platform dedicated to shedding light on the injustices faced by the LGBTQ+ community, encouraging dialogue, and fostering solidarity.

Our Mission

HateCrime.fyi is the initiative that unites researchers, practitioners, and activists in the battle against anti-LGBTQ+ hate crimes. We believe in learning from each other to dismantle the forces driving such violence. Our project serves as a nexus, fostering collaboration and empowering collective action to combat hate crime.

Our Focus

Our platform revolves around four core themes:

  1. Record and Report Hate: We analyze the current landscape of anti-LGBTQ+ violence, scrutinize existing record-keeping methods, and address obstacles hindering incident reporting.

  2. Legal Response: We explore the effectiveness of hate crime legislation in the EU, seeking innovative solutions to combat anti-LGBTQ+ violence and evaluating the adequacy of existing Irish laws.

  3. Enforcement and Practices: Delving into challenges faced by law enforcement in the digital age, we track the journey of a hate crime case from report to verdict. We also confront political hate speech and explore alternatives to police responses.

  4. Disseminate Know-Hows: We examine the role of art and literature in hate crime discourse, questioning the aestheticization of violence and emphasizing the importance of understanding hate crime.
