Enhancing community-law enforcement cooperation in combating hate crimes against Muslims
Vienna
28 April 2014

Swiss OSCE Chairmanship and ODIHR are co-hosting the expert conference "Enhancing Community-Law Enforcement Relations in Combating Hate Crimes against Muslims" in Vienna on 28 April 2014. The event will bring together government officials, law enforcement practitioners, non-governmental organizations and Muslim community representatives.

The objectives of the meeting are threefold:
1) explore the challenges to the security of Muslim communities in the OSCE region, with a particular focus on how to enhance law enforcement - community relations in order to remove barriers to reporting, responding to and preventing hate crimes against Muslims;
2) exchange views on the role of governments and share good practices of co-operation between authorities and Muslim communities;
3) develop a set of recommendations on how to enhance confidence in law enforcement in order to more effectively combat anti-Muslim hate crimes.
