EHRC report on the ‘Causes and motivations of hate crime’

Causes and motivations of hate crime by Mark A. Walters and Rupert Brown with Susann Wiedlitzka, University of Sussex, was published by the Equality and Human Rights Commission on 29 July 2016.

The report looks at the causes and motivations of hate crime based on the five protected characteristics covered by current hate crime law:

  • disability
  • gender reassignment
  • race
  • religion
  • sexual orientation

The report gives an overview of hate crime evidence to inform criminal justice agencies in their approach, with thoughts from the law, policy and social science.
