The Globalization of Hate

Over the past two decades, the United Kingdom has undergone a transformation in its response to hate crime. The catalyst for change was the tragic murder of Stephen Lawrence in 1993, when the police and other agencies were found to have failed Stephen’s family. Whilst no one in the UK establishment would claim that the situation is now perfect, the UK does stand out as having one of the most progressive and holistic responses with a robust legal framework, comprehensive data, and transparent policies for professionals. Key to the UK strategy is the involvement of victims, advocates, and academics at all levels of policy development and a programme that brings all stakeholders together to ensure consistent services. This chapter examines the developments since 1993 and identifies those elements that could be of value to other states who are seeking to improve their own responses.
