  • All News Items- Combating hate crime in the EU - speech by EU Commissioner at the Fundamental Rights Agency Conference in Vilnius
    reports show some chilling facts for example in 2011 almost one in every five sub Saharan African was physically assaulted harassed or threatened on account of their ethnic origin Roma populations suffer similar levels of abuse And around 10 of North African and Turkish people reported being the victim of crimes with a racist motive in the same period Over the past five years around one in four lesbian gay bisexual trans or intersex people have been attacked or threatened with violence The recent report by the FRA on discrimination experienced by these groups shows the impact that intolerance and abuse has on their everyday lives over half of the respondents feel they have to hide their sexual orientation in public places for fear of assault abuse or discrimination Anti Semitic hate crime was experienced by one in every four Jewish people responding to a recent survey while every second Jewish person responding feared becoming the victim of a hate crime In countries that collect reliable data on such hate crimes one sees high levels of anti Semitic incidents It is not just in the streets that these minorities face abuse Online tools like chatrooms and social media is a force for good when countering intolerance and discrimination But these tools can also be hijacked to deliver messages of hate One in ten of all respondents to the Fundamental Rights Agency s survey on anti Semitism said that they had been subjected to offensive or threatening comments online And almost 10 of harassment against LGBTI people takes place over the internet Hate crimes against women are even more common online with almost in in five of young women experiencing abuse in this way each year Hate crimes have their roots in intolerance and ignorance I am therefore very concerned that we are not just seeing more hate crime being committed We are also seeing a shift in attitudes towards minorities During the last decade attitudes towards Muslims Jews and Roma worsened according to the European Values Study The same is true of attitudes towards immigrants This trend is playing into the hands of populist parties We have already seen a neo Nazi party enter the parliament of an EU Member State All over the EU populist parties are gaining ground using rhetoric which is harmful to minorities At the same time mainstream political parties often fail to counter this populist shift Politicians are no longer so willing to speak about the positive roles played by immigrants in European society The benefits of diversity are clear The fact that Europe needs migration to address its demographic challenge is equally clear But there is a worrying lack of political courage and leadership on these issues Rather than defend the contributions made by migrants and minorities in the EU politicians too often join populist parties in blaming minorities for strains on their social security systems for problems in their healthcare systems or for high unemployment Some leading politicians have been more directly xenophobic Before he left office Silvio Berlusconi told his country that a reduction in foreigners in Italy means fewer people to swell the ranks of criminals And when a far right MP in the Hungarian parliament called for a register of Jews to be drawn up that country s leadership took quite some time to jump in to condemn the remarks I am in other words concerned that extremist and intolerant views appear to be gaining ground amongst European citizens and amongst Europe s political parties Hate crimes are a growing problem It is time for the EU and its Member States to act firmly against it This brings me to my second point the signs of progress In January of this year at the Informal EU Council in Dublin Interior Ministers discussed the need to take action to counter intolerance racism anti Semitism xenophobia and homophobia In March Member States wrote to the Commission encouraging us to take steps to safeguard fundamental values in the EU In June the Council adopted Conclusions calling for more work to be done in this field The words of 17 EU Ministers responsible for integration are also encouraging In September they united to condemn the disgraceful racist insults aimed at the Italian minister Cécile Kyenge Their declaration intended to remind Europe of its founding values underlines that the fight against racism discrimination on the grounds of race and xenophobia is the responsibility of all of us It recognises that political leaders have a particular responsibility to combat intolerance both in words and in actions So I am very happy to see Mr Shatter here today as one leading politician to drive forward the debate on how to combat hate crime The Vice President of the European Parliament Mr Surjan is also with us today The European Parliament has long been a strong voice in the struggle against intolerance and prejudice It has stressed the need for more work to promote respect for fundamental rights to make hate crime visible and to condemn those who stand by while hate crimes are committed Only weeks ago the Secretary General of the Council of Europe Thorbjorn Jagland expressed his concerns about the way racist anti Semitic Islamophobic anti minority anti LGBT and anti immigration rhetoric has taken root in mainstream politics He asked politicians to show courage and leadership by moving the public debate away from racism and intolerance I could not agree more So in the EU there is a growing sense that something must be done The question then is what should we do This brings me to my last point The examples of hate crimes I have mentioned already are drawn from all over Europe The problem of hate crime is not limited to a few EU Member States It is one that affects us all no matter where we are from or where we live and work The EU therefore has an important role to play in addressing it This EU involvement has

  • All News Items- Speech by the Minister for Justice, Equality and Defence Alan Shatter TD, at the launch of the Human Rights Commission & Equality Authority 2012 Annual Reports
    Rights Commission and the Equality Authority While progress may have been slower than I had wished we have achieved a number of important milestones along the road I will shortly be publishing the Bill to establish the Irish Human Rights and Equality Commission I look forward to this legislation being fully debated in a constructive and positive manner as it passes through the Houses of the Oireachtas Of course I welcomed the appointment in April of the members designate to the new Commission many of whom I glad to say are with us here today These appointments addressed the issue of the gap at Board level in both the Equality Authority and Human Rights Commission It was also essential that these appointments were made so as to ensure that both organisations can begin to operate as a cohesive unit I have had the pleasure of a very constructive meeting with the Commissioners shortly after their appointment and they raised a number of issues with me at that stage One of the most pressing was the issue of accommodation for the new Commission and with the assistance of the Office of Public Works I understand that a solution has been reached I would like to thank all involved for their cooperation and dedication to the task of finding a workable solution On the position of Chief Commissioner I was disappointed that the selection panel were unable to find a suitable candidate I firmly believe that the role of Chief Commissioner will very much be the public face and voice of the new Commission The Chief Commissioner will be required to show leadership vision and direction For any newly established organisation this is a very important role and I am anxious that a suitable candidate is in place sooner rather than later I intend to re launch a process to appoint a Chief Commissioner as soon as the Bill has been published The responsibility will be vested in the Public Appointments Service which in its various guises has served the State well in bringing high standards of integrity and independence to appointments to a range of public service posts The process will of course be independent and transparent It will fully comply with the Paris Principles I am not a believer in taps on the shoulder Most important of all to many of you is ensuring that adequate budget and staffing arrangements are in place for the new Commission As you know I have been a vocal critic of the cuts imposed in the past on both the Equality Authority and Human Rights Commission Funding and staffing levels need to be restored to a level which will allow the new Commission operate in an efficient and effective manner Both I and my Department are engaged currently in discussions with the Department of Public Expenditure and Reform to reach agreement both on the funding and staffing arrangements for 2014 I remain committed to reaching a positive resolution to this issue I had hoped
