Proximity Policing against Racism, Xenophobia and Other Forms of Intolerance


The project PROXIMITY (“Proximity Policing against Racism, Xenophobia and Other Forms of Intolerance”) aims to contribute to the prevention and fight against racism, xenophobia and other forms of intolerance, including hate crimes at local level, by increasing the capacities of local authorities and especially municipal police to identify and face these phenomena. Besides exchange and sharing of knowledge and experience, the project has as specific objectives to improve the identification and effective prosecution of racism, xenophobia and hate crimes in the cities, supporting local authorities and proximity policing, and to generate a practical Exchange Network and mutual learning, about how to face these challenges.
