Hate Crimes against Foreigners Rise (Finland)

Hate crimes perpetrated in Finland grew by 17 percent compared to 2008, according to a study by the Police College of Finland. Most of these crimes focused on race and ethnicity.

Hate crimes most often took the form of assault and battery, with 85 percent of cases being race-related. The majority of racially motivated crimes were carried out in the Helsinki region.

Suspects tend to be Finnish-born young men between the ages of 15 and 24. Meanwhile, 60 percent of victims are native Finns, including children born to foreign parents.

Racist crimes disproportionately target Somalis living in Finland.

More than 1,000 hate crimes were filed with the police in 2009.
