New Discrimination Reporting Tool Launched in Hungary


A new step forward in reporting discrimination in Hungary was taken this week as Háttér  society launches a new online reporting system.

Lesbian and Gay victims of  discrimination, harassment, violence and such problems based on their sexual orientation or gender identity can now fill out electronic forms in order to report an incident and request legal assistance.

According to a recent survey,  as much as 44 per cent of GLBT Hungarians have had  experienced anti-gay discrimination,  however the majority did not and would not report such incidents to the authorities.

Háttér  believe the  new project will help "promote the reporting and documentation of incidents as well as provide easy access to competent and free legal aid."     

It’s a campaign that’s being welcomed by the International Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Trans and Intersex Association  who are putting up the funding.
