Overview

The policy makers that govern responses to hate crimes and the institutions that research those crimes have up to this point been separate: policy makers have not taken research into consideration, and researchers have conducted their studies with little reference to policies. This book bridges the gap between the two by bringing together internationally renowned hate crime experts from the domains of academia, policy making, and activism. The contributors provide new perspectives on the nature of hate crimes, their victims, and their perpetrators, exploring a range of themes, challenges, and solutions that have otherwise received little attention. The result is a collection of innovative ways of combating hate crime that combines cutting-edge research with the latest in professional innovations, while remaining accessible to a wide audience.

Editorial Reviews

University of Oxford, UK - Carolyn Hoyle

“At a time of heightened focus on ‘hate crimes’, renowned experts Chakraborti and Garland bring together an international array of commentators to make a persuasive case for restorative approaches to hate crime. The strength of this edited collection is found in the synergy between scholarship and policy.”
University of Leicester, UK - Yvonne Jewkes

“Chakraborti and Garland are to be congratulated for bringing together this exceptionally important, comprehensive, and stimulating collection of essays exploring the hate crime scholarship-policy nexus. Responding to Hate Crime is a text of remarkable range and sophistication; it is both timely and forward-thinking. The tragic consequences of prejudice and bigotry are sadly all too familiar to all of us, but the small ‘signs of progress’ noted by the editors are in no small part due to their own pioneering work in this field.”
