The proposals under this call shall focus on the priorities described below:
 Best practices to prevent and combat racism, xenophobia, homophobia
and other forms of intolerance (BEST)

Proposals shall complement the efforts of the EU to prevent and combat racism,

Best practices to prevent and combat racism, xenophobia, homophobia and
other forms of intolerance (BEST)
Definition
The proposals submitted under this priority should focus on the exchange of best
practices to prevent and combat racism, xenophobia and homophobia and other forms of
intolerance, in particular but not limited to hate crime and hate speech. They could
address for example the use of criminal law as a response to these phenomena as well as
other tools (e.g. ethical codes, community-building, awareness raising).
Description of the activities to be funded under this priority
Mutual learning and cooperation activities; in particular, projects aiming at sharing
concrete best practices that are likely to increase efficient prevention as well as effective
responses to racist, xenophobic and homophobic incidents, by means of criminal law and
by other means will be funded. Projects on the use of criminal law should involve
representatives of law enforcement authorities, prosecutors, and members of the judiciary
while projects on prevention should involve actors having an influence on public opinion
(such as media, local decision-makers etc.). The activities should result for example in
the production of a high quality manual summarising best practices, which could be
disseminated to all relevant stakeholders and/or the compilation of training activities
based on already tested models. Wide dissemination of results and concrete
recommendations to relevant stakeholders in all participating countries should be
foreseen in the proposals. Priority will be given to projects involving a large number of
participating countries. Projects on sharing best practices on monitoring and reporting
should be submitted under priority (HATE).


Monitoring and reporting on hate crime and on-line hate speech (HATE)


Projects should focus on:
• monitoring and data collection concerning the existence of
racist/xenophobic/homophobic websites in participating countries;
• sharing of best practices among participating countries with successful reporting
mechanisms including those that rely on third party reporting, anonymous or online
reporting.
• development of efficient reporting mechanisms available to victims of hate crime
(particular focus should be placed on the sustainability of reporting beyond the life of the
project) and/or the establishment of reporting networks;
Proposals should include wide dissemination of results to relevant stakeholders in all
participating countries and to the wider public, aiming to encourage victims or witnesses
of racist or xenophobic incidents to report.
Proposals should ensure close cooperation and coordination among all relevant actors
such as ministries' services, prosecution, police and NGOs in the participating countries.
If applicable, they should include a strategy on how to effectively reach relevant public
authorities and foresee an analysis of possible follow-up.
The funding should be awarded to a few larger projects that would ideally cover all
participating countries, and in any case a high number of them.
