Hate Crime research, studies and articles

  • LGBT in Britain: Hate Crime and Discrimination
  • Understanding who commits hate crime and why they do it
  • CNN The four reasons people commit hate crimes
    "...behind every hate crime is a message: You are not welcome here.
    Behind every strong community is another: Yes, you are."
  • The Psychology of Hate: Why do we Hate?
    "Hatred has to be learned, Golden (Bernard Golden PH.D) says: “We are all born with the capacity for aggression as well as compassion. Which tendencies we embrace requires mindful choice by individuals, families, communities and our culture in general. The key to overcoming hate is education: at home, in schools, and in the community.”
  • How hate crime affects a whole community
    "Thousands of people are physically and sometimes brutally attacked each year in hate crimes. Such offences not only affect the victims, but also the thoughts and behaviour of others."
  • The Sussex Hate Crime Project
    "Community based interventions are likely to be best suited to reducing community based anxieties and the inter group tensions that they give rise to. We have explored the levels of support for alternative community measures such as RJ [Restorative Justice] showing that, contrary to a pervasive belief within the policy domain, there is extensive support for the use of measures that aim to include community dialogue which aims to increase knowledge, reduce ignorance, and repair the harms caused by hate and prejudice."
