In this submission, prepared for the UN Universal Periodic Review of Hungary in May 2011, Amnesty International focuses on the Hungarian authorities’ responses to hate crimes against Roma. Since 2008, Amnesty International has received reports of a number of violent attacks against Roma and their properties in Hungary. Amnesty International’s research into these incidents indicates that the Hungarian authorities have failed to identify and respond effectively to violence against Roma in Hungary, including by not investigating possible racial motivation.
