This report gives an overview of the work we are doing to understand the link between prejudice and unlawful behaviour. It looks at our work to find out what is effective in reducing identity-based hostility, abuse and hate crime in Britain.
The challenge of tackling prejudice and discrimination in Britain has many different issues and includes addressing individual attitudes and the values of our society, as well as improving the response by the criminal justice system and other agencies.
Our work includes:
- a systematic evidence review
- finding out more about 'what works'
- recommendations for policymakers
- developing minimum standards of evaluation
