Abstract

In 2015 the Hate No More campaign commissioned a study of homophobic and transphobic violence and harassment in five countries: Croatia, Hungary, Latvia, Lithuania, and Poland. Past research by the European Union Fundamental Rights Agency had shown that compared to the EU average LGBTQI (lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, queer and intersex) persons in these five EU Member States appeared to face a greater risk of hate violence—physical or verbal assault or harassment due to their LGBTQI identity. This report draws out key points from the study concerning the needs of persons who experience homophobic and transphobic violence and harassment, and the extent to which those needs were addressed by the criminal justice systems in the five countries combined. It provides a rapidly accessible source of reference for activists, policy-specialists, journalists, criminal justice practitioners and professionals, politicians, educators and students.
