The OSCE has given attention to hate crimes on the grounds that they are among the most serious manifestations of intolerance. The OSCE’s Ministerial Council has repeatedly reaffirmed the threat hate crimes pose to the security of individuals and to social cohesion, as well as their potential to lead to conflict and violence on a wider scale. To provide judges and prosecutors with expertise related to introducing the concept of hate crime, which includes among others the definition of this concept, the specifics of the concept of hate crimes, meeting with international legal provisions and European Court of Human Rights and UN Committee practices, training on hate crime for prosecutors and judges will be planned and organized in close co-operation with the Judicial Training Centre (JTC). The training will take place between 2017 and 2018 and will include eight one-day seminars for judges of the criminal sections of the basic and higher courts, judges from misdemeanour courts, and state prosecutors. It is estimated that circa 200 judges and prosecutors will participate in the training. Initially, training will be organized for four trainers among outstanding candidates who at their time will conduct trainings for the rest of professional court and prosecution staff.
In the light of above, the Rule of Law and Human Rights Programme requires the services of two international experts to provide training to trainers and enable them to at their time conduct training on hate crime for the rest of professional court and prosecution staff in Montenegro.
