Platform for hate incident reporting
A pilot version of a platform for reporting and recording hate incidents, which is being developed by the OSCE Office for Democratic Institutions and Human Rights (ODIHR), was presented and discussed with representatives of Polish and Hungarian civil society organizations during meetings in Warsaw and Budapest on 27 and 29 November 2017, respectively.
The Czulent Jewish Association was invited by the ODIRH/OSCE to the program as an organization implementing and testing solutions provided as part of the platform. Our task is to closely cooperate with the ODIHR in order to provide feedback on the platform and its functions, which will be used to prepare the platform.
Our experts, prepared an audit report for UX and proposed several new solutions and functional models.
The platform was prepared by the OSCE in order to support civil society organisations throughout the OSCE region in recording and monitoring incidents of hate crimes and discrimination. Victims and witnesses will be able to submit reports directly to a local civil society organization using an online form, and civil society organizations will be able to maintain a local database of reported cases.
The pilot phase will last for approximately three months. The participating NGOs will provide feedback on the platform’s design and functionality, which will be used to improve the tool. The platform is planned to be made available to a broad number of civil society organizations in spring 2018.
