EUCPN webinar: a victim-centred approach to preventing repeat hate crime victimisation of LGBTI people
Despite considerable progress towards the establishment of an inclusive society, people whose sexual orientation, gender identity, gender expression or sex characteristics do not conform to heteronormative standards are discriminated against and are denied equal human rights to this day.
The webinar (and related paper) will highlight the importance of a victim-centred approach to preventing repeat hate crime victimisation of LGBTI people. Given that it might be hard to prevent LGBTI people from ever experiencing hate-motivated violence or harassment, it seems reasonable to focus on those who have already fallen victim to it and try to prevent them from being victimised again by reducing the likelihood of recurrence, and to make sure they feel safe and empowered by mitigating the fear of crime. A united front of repeat victimisation prevention and victim support is thus crucial.
The webinar is organised in light of the Czech Presidency of the EUCPN, which focuses on working with a particularly vulnerable crime victim. The webinar takes place on Thursday 10 November 2022 between 10:00 – 11:00 CET. Participation is free but registration is mandatory. The access link will be sent prior to the webinar.
