Project Description

FADV’s engagement in countering Islamophobia and discrimination against Muslim women and girls continues with the project TRUST – Tackling Under-Reporting and Under-Recording of Hate Speech and Hate Crimes Against Muslim Women.

Muslim women and girls are a particularly vulnerable group in Italy, affected by episodes of intolerance, racism and xenophobia, episodes that are only rarely reported to the authorities.

The TRUST project therefore aims to investigate and address the reasons that limit the reporting and denouncing of hate speech and hate crimes against Muslim women in Italy,

by promoting a participatory dialogue between police offices, local authorities, civil society organizations and leaders of vulnerable communities to identify the most appropriate approaches and solutions to provide assistance to victims, thus helping to bring to light situations where crimes are usually not reported.
