Abstract

While some European countries protect people from violence based on sexual orientation, others, such as Poland, only combat crimes motivated by racism and xenophobia. The aim of this paper is to shed some light on this phenomenon. The author argues that the fact that hate crime (law) is understood through the genocide of ethnic minorities provides one explanation, in addition to high levels of homophobia, and by extension, the unwillingness of the Polish authorities to provide institutional protection for LGBT people.
