The Research Group SPECTRA led by Associate Professor Petra Bárd deals with the social prerequisites for the effective fight against bias-motivated crimes through criminal law and minority rights protection. The five-year research consortium established in 2018 is supported by the Momentum (in Hungarian: Lendület) programme of the Hungarian Academy of Sciences and is hosted by the Criminology Department of ELTE University Faculty of Law.

The Magyar Helsinki Bizottság / Hungarian Helsinki Committee is a leading human rights organization in Europe with a globally recognized reputation, founded in 1989.
The main areas of operation of the HHC are the protection of the rights of asylum seekers, refugees, and stateless persons and monitoring the human rights performance of law enforcement agencies and the judicial system.

The HHC’s Human Rights Legal Counselling Program has been operating since 1994. The organization has been successfully litigating at the European Court of Human Rights, representing victims of human rights violations, including asylum seekers, members of the Roma community, victims of ill-treatment, and detainees.

The HHC has been working together with the UN Refugee Agency (UNHCR) since 1998 and cooperates with a wide range of European human rights NGOs and academic institutions in the framework of transnational projects.
