Hate Crime Research and Policy Institute
Advancing knowledge and policy on hate crime offending and victimization through evidence-based research
The Hate Crime Research and Policy Institute is committed to advancing research on hate crime offending and bias victimization. The institute examines the ways that hate, bigotry, and extremism influence the victimization of people on the basis of race, ethnicity, religion, gender, gender identity, sexual orientation, disability, and other personal characteristics. This includes research related to spatial and community-level influences on hate crime, victim interactions with the criminal justice system, and the impact of public policy on hate crime offending. Hate crimes have increased significantly across the nation in recent years, and the mission of the institute is to (1) conduct research to advance knowledge on hate crime and (2) develop evidence-based recommendations for improving policies related to hate and bias crime.
