There has been an increasing tendency of hate incidents in Hungary with the intensifying activity of radical movements. The actions are against local Roma people in most of the cases. This project prepares the police commanders to treat ethnical conflicts or provocation properly. It also sends a positive message about the engagement of Roma people in society as law enforcement workers.
The organizers elaborate the methods of the special training and protocol with the contribution of the Hungarian National Police and the experts of the Norwegian Police. The campaign part og the project communicates that many Roma people have been serving for the law enforcement agencies and the police encourages Roma youth to join the police. At the end of the project it is expected that the Hungarian Police will be much more prepared for professional treatment of hate incidents and the picture about Romas in society will be better as well.
