Workshops

At the Hate No More final conference, there will be four workshops taking place simultaneously from 2.30 pm to 4 pm (90 minutes each). As a participant in the conference, you will be able to choose from a variety of topics related to hate crimes and hate speech, taking into account your professional line of work, your interests and you training needs.

The four topics which will be discussed in individual workshop sessions will be:

  • Best practices in contacting LGBTIQ+ victims of hate motivated crime and violence
  • Best practices in contacting with disabled people victims of hate motivated crime and violence
  • Best practices in contacting with ethnic, religious or cultural minority victims of hate motivated crime and violence
  • Best practices for criminal investigation of hate crime

The three first workshops will allow the participants to share and discuss best practices employed when interacting with victims belonging to each group. This will result in and meaningful debate on how to best communicate with these victims of hate crime and hate speech, considering their specific needs when they fall victim to a hate crime.

The fourth workshop in the list is destined to law enforcement and judicial authorities who are responsible for the collection of data and the investigation of hate crime. This workshop will allow the participants to share their modus operandi in what concerns the investigation procedures of these type of crimes, contributing therefore to a significant improve of the criminal system response to this phenomenon.

Since the four workshops will take place simultaneously, their results will be presented and discussed during the afternoon session of the final conference (from 17h to 17h30). This will allow all participants to get familiarised with the discussions which took place in each individual workshop.
