iEngage - Fri, 25/05/2012 - 12:01
 The National Union of Students (NUS) has published a report looking at hate crimes and hate incidents in the higher education sector.  The report, ‘No Place for Hate: Race and Ethnicity’ (http://www.nus.org.uk/PageFiles/12238/2012_NUS_No_Place_for_Hate_Race.pdf) is the fourth in a series of reports funded by the Home Office, exploring hate crimes and hate incidents in further and higher education.In the foreword, the report highlights the salient nature of hate crimes, stating that “In February, figures on hate crimes from the Crown Prosecution Service showed the increase in numbers of hate crime prosecutions, more than 80 per cent of which were related to race and religion.” Such figures, it argues, illustrate the critical nature of the research based on the responses of over 9000 students in higher and further education. It is “the first nationwide, student-specific research of this scale into hate crime.”
