Towards an International Response to Hate Crime

(p.314) Conclusion
The Globalization of Hate

Jennifer Schweppe

Mark Austin Walters

Oxford University Press

The authors begin by highlighting the key theme running throughout the collection that there remains a lack of consensus at an international level on how hate crime should be defined. Two further core themes that emerge from the text are then explored: first, the manner in which hate crime in a national or individual context translates on a global scale; and second, the extent to which an international response to hate crime is possible. The problematization of current international responses to hate crime is discussed, and new avenues through which some of the concerns raised can be surmounted are noted. The authors reflect upon how the contributors to the book are critical of current perspectives on hate crime by the international community; and that the silo-driven nature of international discourses on the subject has served to limit the internationalization of the concept. The authors finally question whether, given these conceptual and practical tensions a truly ‘international’ approach to hate crime will ever be possible.
