Global Terrorism Events and Ensuing Hate Incidents

(p.79) 5 Global Terrorism Events and Ensuing Hate Incidents
The Globalization of Hate

Kathryn Benier

Oxford University Press

In the weeks following 9/11, research showed that there was a drastic spike in the number of hate crimes committed against Muslim and Arab residents in the United States, United Kingdom, Europe, and Australia. Similar patterns of retaliatory hate crimes have also been observed after high-profile terrorist events in Europe. While hate crimes appear to be a consistent consequence in the aftermath of terrorism, differences in the magnitude of this phenomenon have been attributed, in part, to the role of the media in communicating these events. Using Australian data from Victoria Police, and incidents recorded in the Global Terrorism Database, this chapter considers temporal patterns of hate crime offences to determine the temporal relationship between such acts. It examines the role of Australia’s geographic isolation from many of the terrorism events recorded in the database and details the effects that hate-motivated victimizations may create.
