This practical handbook provides user-friendly, concise, expert, and up-to-date guidance for both new and experienced hate crime caseworkers and advocates, whether professionals or volunteers. Filling a gap in the growing debates and research literature on hate crime, it takes as its starting point a values-based casework practice that advocates providing assistance and support to the victims of hate crimes in order to promote empowerment. Featuring core casework standards, direction on how to respond from a person-centered perspective to a victim’s point of view, and an overview of current legislation in relation to the prosecution of hate crimes and the current EU directive on victim support, this book is full of the most relevant, up-to-date information offered by both the research and policy communities. It will enable practitioners to be confident and knowledgeable in supporting victims of hate crime.
