Civic Nation Unity in Deversity

European Centre for Democracy Development is a non-profit organisation engaged in scientific research into interethnic relations and minority policies within the OSCE space.

A key element of ECDD’s work is regular monitoring of manifestations of xenophobia, discrimination and aggressive nationalism in Europe.

The following areas are of particular interest: current legislation affecting minorities; law enforcement practices; discriminatory practices; official actions and statements affecting minorities; migration and attitude towards immigrants, foreign nationals and ethnic minorities; hate speech; neo-Nazi and radical nationalist parties and groups; their influence on policymakers and civil society; hate crime; public glorification of German National Socialism and Nazi collaborators; desecration of monuments and memorials dedicated to the Allied forces; Holocaust denial; abuse of anti-extremism legislation; and persecution of human rights activists.

The report is sourced from legislative acts, official public domain documents (such as statistical reports on hate crime), Ombudsman’s office, international human rights organisations, media reports and sociological surveys conducted during the observed period.
