Saturday, February 3rd, 2024: Matteo Vergani PhD Asso. Prof. Deakin Uni. Impact of Hate Crimes on Victims

Macca and Nevena talk to Matteo Vergani PhD Asso. Prof. Deakin Uni. Impact of Hate Crimes on Victim, a new study finds more harm in hate crimes – especially crimes based on disability, gender, and sexual orientation.

 

A recent study titled “Revisiting the Harm of Hate: A Quasi-Experimental Approach Using the National Crime Victimization Survey” delves into the longstanding question: Do hate crimes inflict more harm than other types of crimes? Utilising data from the National Crime Victimization Survey (2010–2020), the research employs advanced statistical methods, including propensity scores and inverse-probability weighting, to explore this issue.

While previous studies have indicated that victims of hate crimes often suffer greater physical and emotional harm than victims of non-biased crimes, these findings have been inconsistent, influenced by various factors like the characteristics of victims and offenders, the motivation for the crime, and the circumstances of the crime itself. This study aims to address these disparities and provide a more nuanced understanding of the impact of hate crimes.
