Between January 2015 and December 2016 Háttér Society, in cooperation with Campaign Against Homophobia (Poland), a Kontra (Croatia), az LGL (Lithuania), a Mozaika (Latvia), a Warsaw University and the Polish Society of Anti-Discrimination Law executed a research and training project entitled Accomodating the needs of the victims of homophobic and transphobic hate crimes - raising the competences of law-enforcement institutions.
The aim of the project was to assess the legal framework, conduct interview and survey research with victims of homophobic and transphobic hate crimes and develop a toolkit for law enforcement and victim support personnel to work with victims of homophobic and transphobic hate crimes. The toolkit was adapted to the Hungarian environment, and we delivered training for police officers, prosecutors and victim support personnel on how the use the toolkit in their everyday work.
The main supporter of the project was the Fundamental Rights and Citizenship Programme of the European Commission, Háttér Society received EUR 83,858 of the funding. Additional funding has been provided by the NGO Fund of the EEA/Norway Grants.
