In recent years, we have witnessed continued and renewed violations of fundamental rights, including physical and verbal attacks on minority groups, immigrants, and on organisations defending human dignity. All European countries are committed to countering discrimination and intolerance, including hate speech and hate crime. 

Norway shares the values of human rights and tolerance. As donor of the EEA and Norway Grant we are a strategic partner to the Council of Europe’s No Hate Speech Movement on combating hate speech. 

European Action Day for Victims of Hate Crime 22 July
On 22 July the Movement organises the European Action Day for Victims of Hate Crime and encourages people across Europe to commemorate and support victims of hate crime and to take action against hate crime. Recognition of hate crime and public awareness is an important part of the justice for victims.

The date 22 July was proposed by the young people taking part in the No Hate Speech campaign to commemorate the victims of the 2011 terrorist attacks against the Government Quarter in Oslo, Norway and on Utøya. The explosion in the Government Quarter and the massacre on Utøya 22 July 2011 claimed 77 lives, many of them young people. 

What can you do?
Go to the No Hate Speech Movement website and join the campaign against hate speech, racism and discrimination in their online expression. There you can also find out more about how you can get involved and what you can do on the action day.

Norwegian engagement
The Government of Norway has given priority to tackling increasing intolerance and hate in Europe. In May, the Ministry of Foreign Affairs hosted an international conference on right-wing extremism, hat crime and minorities under pressure.

Through the support for civil society and in other programmes of the EEA and Norway Grants we are also mobilising to reduce the levels of rising hate speech and hate crime in Europe.
