Prevention, Protection, Prosecution: Effectively Tackling Hate Crime in Every Community

The continuing disparity between estimated levels of hate crimes and the numbers recorded by the police highlight an enduring reluctance of victims to report incidences of hostility, whilst online abuse has evolved into an increasingly prevalent and pernicious practice. This timely symposium will therefore offer an invaluable opportunity for local authorities, the police, legal professionals and third sector practitioners to analyse these challenges and strengthen their working partnerships to ensure that hate crime in all its forms can be tackled effectively in every local community.

Delegates will:

  • Determine how to increase rates of reporting by raising confidence in the criminal justice system and providing better support for victims.
  • Develop improved methods for identifying, understanding and responding to hate crime across the criminal justice system to ensure effective sentencing.
  • Evaluate how to combat harmful narratives, attitudes and behaviours to build cohesive communities based upon mutual respect and tolerance.
  • Analyse how to safeguard against online abuse, support and empower victims, and tackle its perpetration.
  • Share examples of best practice concerning effective operational responses, service provision and targeted policing to prevent repeat victimisation.
