Abstract: Hate crime victims who chose to participate in criminal or civil proceedings must feel safe and supported each step of the way. They should have the opportunity to present the harm they have suffered, receive compensation and have the confidence that their procedural rights will be safeguarded. Regardless if the prosecution leads to conviction, it is imperative that hate crime victims have meaningful access to justice and can participate in the criminal proceedings. The webinar is organized as part of the Enhancing Stakeholder Awareness and Resources for Hate Crime Victim Support (EStAR) project []. It will promote hate crime victims’ active participation and adequate support provision during the criminal proceedings. Leading experts and practitioners in the field will provide insights into victims’ participation rights in different types of jurisdictions, provision of legal aid in criminal proceedings and international litigation. It will look at how hate crime victims should be supported during these proceedings, as well as offer professional perspectives and experiences on navigating the criminal justice system.
