Observatorio Nacional de Crímenes de Odio LGBT (in English, The National Observatory on LGBT Hate Crimes) was created to monitor and render visible violence against the LGBT community that may constitute hate crimes.

Mission and Purpose

In 2016, the Observatorio Nacional de Crímenes de Odio LGBT (The National Observatory on LGBT Hate Crimes) was created to monitor and create awareness around violence against the LGBT community. Hate crimes are committed by perpetrators with the sole intention of targeting victims who belong to a particular social group and discriminating against them on grounds of for example, sexual orientation, expression and gender identity.

Origins and Development

In 2010, Argentina was the first Latin American country to recognize same-sex marriage. Two years later, in 2012, Bill No. 26.791 modified the Criminal Code to punish with life in prison hate crimes motivated by sexual orientation and gender identity. In this context, the Observatory was created by the Anti-Discrimination Institute of the Ombudsman's Office of the City of Buenos Aires, the Argentine LGBT Federation, and the National Ombudsman's Office.

Organizational Structure, Membership, and Funding

Specializations, Methods and Tools

Created by the Anti-Discrimination Institute of the Ombudsman's Office of the City of Buenos Aires, the Argentine LGBT Federation, and the National Ombudsman's Office, the Observatory seeks to monitor violence against the LGBT community and influence the formulation of legislation and public policy regarding the prevention, punishment and eradication of hate crimes against the LGBT community. In its 2019 report, the Observatorio Nacional made some urgent recommendations for the State which included: integral reform of the Law Against Discrimination; training to the national security forces on topics of human rights, sexual diversity, and non-discrimination; as well as the adoption of nationwide educational campaigns for the LGBT community about their rights and access to public services.
