‘Hate crimes are a global problem and a serious human rights challenge that require a comprehensive response from governments and other stakeholders wherever they occur. This Handbook is an important new tool in the formulation of policies to combat hate crime, offering the latest thinking from top experts on the nature, incidence and impact of hate crime, as well as an honest account of the progress made and challenges that remain in law enforcement, criminal justice, and other policy responses to these crimes and the intolerance in which they are rooted.’ - Paul LeGendre, Human Rights First, USA
