Transforming scholarship

The Centre for Hate Studies is renowned for undertaking pioneering and transformative research. Over the course of the past two decades we have garnered an international reputation for adopting innovative approaches to accessing and engaging with ‘hard to reach’ communities and to collecting data through the use of auto-ethnography and visual methodologies. This research has enhanced academic understanding of the importance and value of incorporating unorthodox methodologies.

Our research has revolutionised theoretical frameworks within the field of hate studies and within the broader discipline of Criminology. This research has transformed academic understanding about the people affected by hate and extremism; the prevalence and forms that hate and extremism can take; the physical and emotional impacts of hate and extremism; and what motivates people to commit acts of hate and engage in extremist activity.
