Anti-Trans Hate Crimes in Central and Eastern Europe and Central Asia
TGEU collects reports of violence and hate incidents against trans people every year and, together with partner organisations, submits them to the Offce for Democratic Institutions and Human Rights (ODIHR) of the Organization for Security and Co-operation in Europe (OSCE). TGEU’s submission to ODIHR covers hate crimes against trans people in Azerbaijan, Finland, France, Hungary, Italy, Kazakhstan, Kyrgyzstan, Moldova, Russia, Spain, Turkey, Uzbekistan as well as homicides in other OSCE member states, including the United States. ODIHR annually publishes hate crime data for all its member states based on information provided by states, international organisations, and civil society.
This brief report focuses on violence and hate crimes against trans people in Europe and Central Asia from 2020, with data from the ProTrans project and the Trans Murder Monitoring (TMM).
