Crime and Deviance:
Hate Crime is high profile now.
But the cases of violent hate crime we see in the media are just the tip of the iceberg: things like verbal abuse, bullying, threats, and damage to property have become just another part of everyday life for many people.
This film, featuring one of the UK’s leading hate crime researchers, Professor Neil Chakraborti, looks at:
- what hate crime is,
- how it can be measured and
- why popular media stereotypes of typical hate offenders are so misleading.
