Training of police officers on preventing and combating discrimination against Roma

In June-July 2021, the team of JUSTROM in Greece has successfully completed four training courses for police officers on preventing and combating discrimination against Roma.

The four training events, two days each, were attended by a total of 80 police officers of different ranks from the region of Attica, appointed by the education directorate of the Hellenic Police.

The trainers, experts from JUSTROM pool of trainers, were Police lieutenant Michael Lolis and lawyer Alexandra Karagianni.

During the events, the participants discussed, among others, the national legal framework for hate crimes; crimes with racist motive, typology and case law, with a particular focus on Roma; community policing and intercultural mediation; antigypsyism as a special form of racism and case law of the European Court of Human Rights.
