Hate Crime After Brexit: Linking Terrestrial and New Forms of Data to Inform Governance


Hate Crime After Brexit examined the relationship between Brexit and the rise of race and religious hate crime in the UK at national, regional and local levels and the implications this has for governance.

The project investigated whether the Brexit vote represented an exogenous ‘shock’ that legitimised, for a temporary period, hate crimes towards members of the ‘out-group’ and to identify the locations with the largest spike in Brexit-related hate crime.

To maximise the relevance of this project to the needs of policy, the objectives were co-produced with the UK Head of the Cross-Government Hate Crime Programme.
