Hate speech and violence against Serbs in 2015

The sixth bulletin provides an overview of cases of ethnic violence, threats, and hate speech directed at Serbs in Croatia in the previous year. The data provided here was collected by the Independent Democratic Serbian Party (SDSS) Club in the Croatian Parliament and the Serb National Council from individual reports and media coverage. In 2015 there were a total of 189 reported cases, which represents a significant increase on the previous year when there were only 82. In addition to the general state of society, this steep increase was also caused by a change in the data collection method. Namely, in 2015 the Serb National Council and SDSS caucus in the Croatian Parliament systematized their methods and focused more attention on media monitoring, as opposed to 2013 and 2014.
