Wong, Kevin and Christmann, Kris (2009) The Role of Victim Decision Making in Reporting of Hate Crimes. Community Safety Journal, 7 (2). pp. 19-35. ISSN 1757-8043

This study tests assumptions implicit in many of the policy developments around hate crime reporting that concern the social context and some of the psychological processes behind decisionmaking on victim reporting. Results suggest that official concern over reporting all hate crimes for service planning requirements is not shared by the overwhelming majority of respondents and would not be feasible to deliver. If reporting is to be increased it needs to deliver a more tangible and personally experienced outcome for the individual.
