“The results of the OSINT research align with the GNCHR’s findings from monitoring and reporting activities and with the RVRN’s and its members recording incidents of racist violence in Greece in recent years. The results show the racist motivation for hate speech and hate crimes against migrants and refugees. As identified by the research using social media, websites and blogs, incidents of verbal or even physical violence infused with racist motives against third-country nationals take place regularly. Recent incidents do not reflect actions of coordinated violence against refugees and migrants from far-right groups. At the same time, the trend that is observed depicts intense racist rhetoric as well as institutional targeting against refugees and migrants.”
