British Society of Criminology Panel Session: Moving Beyond the Echo Chamber

Wednesday 15 November 13.00 – 14.30

Vijay Patel Building, Room 2.02, De Montfort University, Leicester, LE1 9BH

Within the current context of the need for fresh responses to hate crime, and despite progress within the domains of scholarship and policy, escalating levels of hate crime and the associated rise in tensions, demonisation and hostility towards 'difference' cast doubt over the effectiveness of existing measures and their capacity to protect victims. This session draws from extensive fieldwork conducted by the panel members to examine, among other things, the nature, impact and implications of hate crime. Speakers include Professor Neil Chakraborti, Head of Department and Director of the Centre for Hate Studies, Department of Criminology, University of Leiciester; Kim Sadique, Senior Lecturer in Community and Criminal Justice, De Montfort University; and Dr Irene Zempi, Lecturer in Criminology, Nottingham Trent University.
