Journal of Analysis number 36: Laws of Hate Crimes: A Practical Guide (OSCE)

Although the existence of “hate crimes” is as old as humanity itself, its legal recognition began only in recent decades. It was not until the international advance of human rights and judicial order that hatred of what is different could be pinpointed as the singular origin and motivation of a crime.
