Hate crime: New challenges and developing app to improve reporting in the West Yorkshire region and in the country
Professor Adrian Favell and Dr Roxana Barbulescu have partnered with Stop Hate UK, a leading charity on hate crime in order to better understand the challenges of the recent rise of hate motivated crime and incidents across Britain. In January 2018, the Commission on Diversity in the North organised a working session with its members and the wider public which focused on understanding trends on hate crime. Dr Roxana Barbulescu gave a talk on the New Challenges of Tackling Hate Crime in the UK
Together with Stop Hate UK, we have worked together on an app to remove barriers to and improve reporting of hate crime in West Yorkshire. The App helps witnesses and those targeted because of their identity, throughout West Yorkshire, to report incidents of Hate Crime, whether you are a victim of Hate Crime, you have witnessed incident you believe to be a Hate Crime or you are a third party to an incident that could be a Hate Crime.
The App is available on Android and IOS platforms by going to Google Play or the Apple App Store and searching for ‘Stop Hate UK’
