‘Hate crime’ is a relatively new concept in the international criminal justice policy arena. Diverse social, political and historical contexts produce inconsistent terminology, data collection methods and responses at the national level, with significant implications for the feasibility of ‘hate crime’ as a concept with global application. This chapter critically re-explores the case for the hate crime model as a way of understanding and responding to violence, and evaluates the role of policy makers, the academy, IGOs and NGOs in supporting its full implementation at the international and national levels. Current work to provide guidance to OSCE member states on setting up hate crime data collection systems is described and offered as a way forward to support efforts to achieve a common approach to evidencing and responding to hate crime at the international level.
