As a member of the Coalition Against Hate Crime ICCL has called for the introduction of hate crime legislation for a number of years. Our report ‘Lifecyle of a Hate Crime’ outlines the challenge of hate-motivated victimisation in our society.
Life Cycle of a Hate Crime
In July 2018 we launched the Lifecycle of a Hate Crime. This report highlighted that the absence of any laws against hate crime has led to a “policy vacuum” in relation to crimes motivated by prejudice in Ireland.
From the moment a hate crime is reported, the hate element is filtered out by the system making it impossible for victims of hate crimes to get the justice they deserve. Read our press release here.
We need your support to keep up the pressure for urgent legislation on hate crime. Will you donate to the cause?
