Short project description: Project aims to improve the hate crime (HC) prevention and HC victims´ support in CEE and Western Balkan region through strengthening the professional competencies of HC victims´service providers and other organizations that help people/communities exposed to HC.

Project leader is organisation In IUSTITIA from Czech Republic and project partners are HC victims´service providers from Poland, Slovakia, Serbia and Bosnia and Herzegovina. IAN and Praxis are project partners from Serbia.

Results: Initial meeting of all project partners and training of trainers were held in Prague in September 2014. The aim of the training was to raise awareness, increase knowledge and equip those who deliver training in working with victims/survivors of hate crime. The focus was on learning, development and capacity building of trainers. It was the opportunity for project partners to share experiences, practices and legislative of different countries in regard to hate crime and to build mutual strategy on sharing knowledge and good practices among our local communities.

One workshop on Hate crimes prevention was held in Belgrade for 9 participants. Participants were representatives of IAN partner organisation Dusa. Dusa is user run organisation that gathers users of psychiatric services and their family members who are multiply vulnerable. Workshop evaluations showed that participants were very satisfied with its content and performance. Four other workshops were held in Tutin. Tutin was targeted as multicultural environment. IAN has good cooperation with Youth office in Tutin, so we contacted them and discussed possibility of conducting workshops for their activists. They showed great interest in participation in workshops and reported they have more than 40 people who were willing to participate. Participants were representatives of Tutin Youth Office, organisation SOS and dance group TT District. Workshop evaluations showed that participants found that their knowledge and awareness about certain concepts and phenomena in society were increased. They also stated that they learned how to respect the differences, that their level of humanity was increased and that they would have more understanding and tolerance for differences in future.
