Reports on the glorification of Nazism

Since 2012, the General Assembly has mandated the Special Rapporteur to submit annual reports, to both the Human Rights Council and the General Assembly, on the glorification of Nazism, neo-Nazism and other practices that contribute to fuelling contemporary forms of racism, racial discrimination, xenophobia and related intolerance.

The reports address the manifestation in many parts of the world of various extremist political parties, movements, ideologies and groups of a racist or xenophobic character, including neo-Nazis and skinhead groups and examine the implementation of discriminatory measures and policies at the local or national levels, triggered by this trend. 

Furthermore, the reports present recommendation for Member States to continue to take adequate steps, including through national legislation, aimed at preventing and countering incitement to violence against racial, ethnic, religious minorities and ideas based on racial superiority or hatred.
