03/11/2014 – While Amnesty International welcomes the continued attention given to hate crime by EU member states, we are concerned that relevant discussions and conferences have not been followed-up with any commitments to take action at EU level. We believe that the working party should serve to promote much needed new steps in EU policy-making on hate crime.
