Transgender Europe (TGEU) presents a collection of hate crimes against trans people every year and, together with partner organisations, submits them to the OSCE Office for Democratic Institutions and Human Rights (ODIHR). ODIHR publishes hate crime data for all its member states based on information provided by states, international organisations, and civil society. As countering hate crime requires a comprehensive effort, ODIHR works together with government institutions, criminal justice systems, civil society actors, and international organisations, and supports them in designing and developing monitoring mechanisms and data collection, drafting legislation that addresses hate crimes, and building the capacity of prosecutors and police in OSCE countries to understand, investigate, and prosecute these crimes effectively.

This brief report focuses on violence and hate crimes against trans people in Central and Eastern Europe and Central Asia in 2016, and presents a summary of the cases collected by TGEU’s Transrespect versus Transphobia Worldwide and ProTrans projects through partnerships with trans rights groups and advocates in the respective countries. Cases documented by Labrys in Kyrgyzstan are also included into the submission.
