Why hate crimes require special attention? – The impact of hate crimes on social cohesion.
Hate crimes are crimes based on prejudice. They happen everywhere as no society is immune to the effects of prejudice and intolerance. Hate crimes undermine societal cohesion by sowing the seeds of wider-scale violence.
While institutions often underestimate the impact of this phenomenon, civil society organisations (CSOs) can play a crucial role in winning the battle against hate crimes.
Our new information leaflet provides you with information on characteristics and societal impact of hate crimes. Additionally, possibilities are given on how your organisation can approach the problem and how to assist affected individuals or groups.
