The Council attaches great importance to the effective transposition and implementation of the framework Decision on combating Racism and Xenophobia and other relevant hate crime laws at national level.

The Council consistently calls upon Member States to develop effective methods to report and ensure proper recording of hate crimes(1).

At national level, it is for law enforcement authorities and national courts to protect fundamental rights when they are attacked by political extremists. The Commission, as guardian of the Treaties, is responsible for overseeing Member States' application of Union law.

(1)Council conclusions on the application of the Charter of Fundamental Rights in 2015, adopted by the Council at its 3473rd meeting held on 9 June 2016, 10005/16.
