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.
The survey and interviews were conducted by the Latvian Centre for Human Rights within the framework of the project “Promotion civic engagement in eliminating discrimination and intolerance”. The project was implemented from 1 July 2016 to 31 October 2016. It was funded from the Latvian government “NGO fund” which is administered by the Society Integration Foundation.
