State of the World's Minorities and Indigenous Peoples 2014: Case studies

The international organisation’s flagship report, State of the World's Minorities and Indigenous Peoples 2014, focuses on ‘Freedom from hate’ and presents compelling evidence showing that hate crime and hate speech are prevalent in all regions of the world.

But hate crime is widely ignored, under-reported and often left unchecked by governments, resulting in escalating violence against minorities, says MRG in the report.
