The objective of this project is to carry out a regular daily review and share of hate crime related stories reported by various sources over the internet.
A daily Google alert for ‘hate crime’ has been set up.
Each day the alert is reviewed – the headlines and links to the stories are posted on a daily basis to the London Hate Crime blog, labelled ‘hatewatch’, with the date, a summary of what the stories are about, and tagged with key words which feature in the stories.
The Hatewatch post is then shared via social media.
During each hate crime story review we will note the key issues, key organisations involved, names of victims and perpetrators in the summary.
This research also provides us with an opportunity to use social media to connect with anti-hate crime campaigners around the world and promote their work.
