It invites the reader to consider relevant social mores and practices as well as criminal justice policies as they relate to hate crimes by presenting this subject within a broad context.

In a contemporary setting of increasing social division and marginalisation, Policing Hate Crime interrogates the complexities of prejudice motivated crime and effective policing practices. Hate crime has become a barometer for contemporary police relations with vulnerable and marginalised communities. But how do police effectively lead conversations with such communities about problems arising from prejudice? Contemporary police are expected to be active agents in the pursuit of social justice and human rights by stamping out prejudice and group-based animosity. At the same time, police have been criticised in over-policing targeted communities as potential perpetrators, as well as under-policing these same communities as victims of crime. Despite this history, the demand for impartial law enforcement requires police to change their engagement with targeted communities and kindle trust as priorities in strengthening their response to hate crime. Drawing upon a research partnership between police and academics, this book entwines current law enforcement responses with key debates on the meaning of hate crime to explore the potential for misunderstandings of hate crime between police and communities, and illuminates ways to overcome communication difficulties. This book will be important reading for students taking courses in hate crime, as well as victimology, policing, and crime and community.

The Globalization of Hate: Internationalizing Hate Crime? is the first book to examine the impact of globalization on our understanding of hate speech and hate crime. Bringing together internationally acclaimed scholars with researchers, policy makers and practitioners from across the world, it critically scrutinises the concept of hate crime as a global phenomenon, seeking to examine whether hate crime can, or should, be conceptualised within an international framework and, if so, how this might be achieved. Beginning with the global dynamics of hate, the contributions analyse whether hate crime can be defined globally, whether universal principles can be applied to the phenomenon, how hatred is spread, and how it impacts upon our global society. The middle portion of the book moves beyond the broader questions of globalisation to jurisdictional examples of how globalization impacts upon our understanding of, and also our responses to, hate crime. The chapters explore in greater detail what is happening around the world and how the international concepts of hate crime are being operationalised locally, drawing out the themes of globalization and internationalization that are relevant to hate crime, as evidenced by a number of jurisdictions from Europe, the US, Asia, and Africa. The final part of the book concludes with an examination of the different ways in which hate speech and hate crime is being combatted globally. International law, internet regulation and the use of restorative practices are evaluated as methods of addressing hate-based conflict, with the discussions drawn from existing frameworks as well as exploring normative standards for future international efforts. Taken together, these innovative and insightful contributions offer a timely investigation into the effects of hate crime, offering an interdisciplinary approach to tackling what is now a global issue. It will be of interest to scholars and students of criminology, sociology and criminal justice, as well as criminal justice practitioners, police officers and policy makers.

Hate Crimes, Hassverbrechen oder Vorurteilskriminalitat sind Schlagworte, die in der aktuellen Debatte um Rechtsextremismus einen prominenten Platz einnehmen. Marc Coester beschaftigt sich mit eingehender wissenschaftlicher Analyse aus kriminologisch-sozialwissenschaftlicher Perspektive und in dieser Form ein- und erstmalig mit der Entstehung und Entfaltung sowie rechtlichen Verortung des Konzepts der Hate Crimes aus den USA. Er stellt es dem Konzept des Rechtsextremismus gegenuber und zeigt, ob und gegebenenfalls wie es auch in Deutschland fruchtbar gemacht werden konnte. Hierbei wahlt der Autor die Methodik der vergleichenden Kriminologie sowie Rechtsvergleichung, analysiert umfassend sieben Dimensionen beider Konzepte (Begriffe, Entwicklungen, (justizielle) Umgange, statistische und empirische Profile, Theorien und praventiv-padagogische Modelle) und stellt diese anschaulich und nach aktuellem Stand gegenuber. Im Ergebnis wird umsichtig und eindrucklich dargelegt, wie es gelingen konnte, entsprechende Konzepte von der einen in die andere Gesellschaft zu ubertragen."
