Germany must step up efforts to prevent and counter extremism and neo-Nazism, the Council of Europe’s European Commission against Racism and Intolerance (ECRI) said in a report published on Monday.

The ECRI recommended Germany should take action to:

  • Ensure that evidence of online hate speech is shared with the police;
  • Reinforce existing equality bodies
  • Update the National Action Plan on Integration.
