From March to October 2017, Latvian Centre for Human Rights in cooperation with experts from Participation Platform organised 10 training seminars for young people and one training seminar for teachers on intolerance and hate speech. The trainings were organised in the framework of a project “Say NO to hate speech” co-funded by the Education, Culture and Sports Department of the Riga City Council in the framework of the Society integration programme.
September and October 2016, Latvian Centre for Human Rights (LCHR) conducted a survey of foreign students and migrants on manifestations of intolerance (hate speech, hate crimes, etc.) in Latvia. For that purpose, NGOs working with migrants, asylum seekers and refugees, and their representatives were interviewed, and an anonymous online survey was conducted among foreign students in Latvia.
