Questionnaire on hate crime monitoring training

    BACKGROUND

    This questionnaire is designed to identify the current methodologies and practices of hate crime monitoring training provided by local, regional, national and umbrella organisations committed to giving greater visibility to the daily issue of hate crime. According to the 2012 European Union Agency for Fundamental Rights (FRA) report ‘Making hate crime visible in the European Union: acknowledging victims’ rights’, the data collection mechanisms of most European countries ‘fail to capture the reality’ of hate crimes. CSOs’ work is therefore vital in filling the gap left by governments so that the denial of such incidents can be eradicated.’ [1] Making Hate Crime Visible in the European Union: acknowledging victims’ rights, FRA European Union Agency for Fundamental Rights, p. 8 http://fra.europa.eu/sites/default/files/fra-2012_hate-crime.pdf

    NEW PHASE, NEW QUESTIONNAIRE: MAKE YOUR WORK MORE VISIBLE

    The second phase of our Facing Facts! project aims to build on the successes of the first. Over the course of 2011-2012, the hate crime monitoring practices of over 80 Civil Society Organisations (CSOs) were mapped, and an innovative training methodology was developed to build the capacity of CSOs in this field. We now present this survey in order to clearly map the extent to which training on hate crime is currently undertaken by state actors and CSOs, thus sustaining and developing the key concepts of Facing Facts!. As a result, we hope to widen the network of trainers in the field, improve cooperation and solidarity between different social groups and start the process of enabling a simplified system for CSOs to submit hate crime data to transnational agencies. Organisations, both new to and familiar with the work of Facing Facts!, are invited to fill out the questionnaire. We believe that your contribution will be of mutual benefit, i.e. by submitting a questionnaire your organisation will be able to benefit from our research and your work will become more visible to transnational agencies. You will also have the opportunity to be involved in the Facing Facts! network and keep up to date with upcoming European training opportunities. The results of this survey will be presented in a single overview ‘Mapping Report’ and made available to other CSOs and governmental institutions in the field.

    15 MINUTES OF YOUR TIME

    The questionnaire is composed of 16 questions, divided into 4 sections. It will take no more than 15 minutes to complete. The first section addresses general questions about the organisation while the other sections seek to collect information about the provision of hate crime training, the methodology and target audience of any such training, challenges faced when conducting training, the evaluation of current training and plans for the future. The results of this survey will remain anonymous and only aggregated (collective) data will be used. We ask respondents to answer all the questions on the basis of their experience and knowledge. We need the questionnaire to be filled in completely in order to fully use the data provided. Click on Continue and start to fill in the questionnaire. Once finished, please click on Submit. The submitted questionnaire cannot be modified after clicking on Submit. Thank you in advance for your participation and don’t hesitate to contact us if you need any additional information about the questionnaire and/or the project. Deadline for submissions: February 15th
