Material from a roundtable for Kosovo Police officers from police stations of Mitrovica/Mitrovicë North, Zubin Potok, Zvečan/Zveçan and Leposavić/Leposaviq, with an aim to increase their knowledge and understanding of hate speech.


Participants were provided with an overview of international human rights standards and domestic laws related to freedom of expression, hate speech and hate crimes. The sessions also focused on understanding the fine line between freedom of expression and hate speech, and between hate speech and hate crime, through analysis of case studies and practical examples provided by participants.
