The involvement of academia in the administration of government has been fairly common in the United States for some time. This has been progressively mirrored in recent years in England and Wales, where many policy-makers in various hate crime circles both locally and nationally have, for a variety of reasons, become increasingly amenable to the notion of involving ‘outsiders’ in the policy-making process. This chapter reflects upon the personal experience of an academic venturing into the world of hate crime policy-making within the context of both policing and central government. In addition, the chapter discusses the implications of the lessons learned for understanding and furthering the academic-practitioner/policy-maker relationship.
