Race & Religious Issues

Political issues or intolerance can cause upheaval and mistreatment of others in some countries. Political rallies and anniversaries of historic events often spur ethnic and religious conflicts. Certain hate crimes may not even be considered illegal in different countries. In particular, religious affiliation may put you at risk, but this should not negate your overall experience in the host country. Do some research beforehand to survey the national sentiment and current events.
