STAND-UP project has started to address hate crime and hate speech related phenomena. This project will contribute to improve tools for reporting, investigation, prosecution and prevention, all framed within a victim-centred approach.
The STAND-UP project started on February 2022 aiming to fill the gaps identified at European level as lacks of clear definitions of hate crime, structured frameworks on hate crime reporting, recording, data sharing and resources. The end of the project is to ensure that no under-or unnecessary overlaps exist in complementary multi-agency efforts to address hate-related phenomena through reporting, investigation, prosecution and prevention, all framed within a victim-centred approach. For that, Stand-Up will establish mechanisms for public authority-led, multi-agency and multi-dimensional action against hate crime, discrimination and intolerance.

Discrimination, intolerance and hatred are still present in European societies, often leading to serious and violent crimes.

These practices and feelings are largely causes of broader social tensions and have long-lasting repercussions on victims, their families and on our societies. However, there are deficiencies at the European level in the management of hate crimes and discrimination against people or communities based on gender, race, sexuality or other aspects, as well as in the response given by the public authorities of European countries. All the elements of, and actors responsible for, countering hate crime must be addressed cooperate within one coordinated framework.
Co-funded by the European Commission Directorate General for Justice and Consumers under Grant number: 101049532. Coordinated by Procura della Repubblica di Trento (Italy) with the Prosecution office of Venice (Italy), Fondazione Agenfor International (Italy), Fundación Euroárabe de Altos Estudios (Spain), European Public Law Organization (Greece), Greek National Commission for Human Rights (Greece), Association Des Agences de la Démocratie Locale (France).
STAND-UP aims to establish a public authority-led, multi-agency model for countering hate crime.
The model, designed and verified through participatory design process and a 6-month piloting period, comprises:
  • Technological instruments to enhance monitoring of the phenomenon and inter-agency data exchange,
  • A co-designed standardised definition of hate crime,
  • Two compatible models for hate crime reporting (for law enforcement (LEAs) and Civil Society Organisations (CSOs) respectively), and
  • A multi-agency handbook for victim support.

The STAND-UP project kick-off meeting was held on 2 of February, 2022.  The partners from Italy, Spain, Greece and France met for the first time to discuss the objectives, outcomes and roles of partners in  each work packages. Looking forward to working together against hate, discrimination and intolerance in the EU.

Three Focus Group will be held in Italy, Spain and Greece involving members of relevant CSOs, specialised lawyers, judges, and local police. FGs will be used to define the appropriate parameters of OSINT monitoring in order to gain a comprehensive and detailed picture of the hate- and discriminatory climate in any given locality, as well as to understand how the outputs ca best be designed to support public authority and CSO work.
