Dr Nathan Hall
Associate Head (Academic)
My principal research interest lies in the field of hate crime and in particular criminal justice responses to hate crime in the United Kingdom, the United States and elsewhere. My doctoral research involved a comparative analysis of the policing of hate crime in London and New York City and specifically examined issues including organisational and individual police culture, investigative processes and practices, service provision, the 'lived experience' of both police officers and victims in the policing of hate crimes, and the social construction of the hate crime 'problem'. I have published widely in this field, predominantly in the area of policing, but also in relation to other areas of the criminal justice system, and the motivations for hate offending and how these might be addressed.
