Abstract

The paper refreshes our understanding of the established definitions of race hate crime, before reflecting on the impact on victims and reviewing criminal justice responses. It explores the nature and context of offences, in order to look at the characteristics of perpetrators and their rehabilitation. It considers briefly whether the criminal justice response would be complemented by more emphasis on deterrence, before drawing to a summary and conclusion.
