Professor Paul Iganski


Research Interests

For over two decades I have specialised in research, writing, teaching, and public engagement about hate crime and hate speech. My research and public engagement activity directly informs my teaching.

I particularly apply a victim-centred harms-based approach focusing on the impacts and consequences of hate victimisation and how this might inform policy and practice with hate crime victims and offenders. My research featured as a hate crime impact case study for the UK’s 2014 Research Excellence Framework.

I mostly conduct my research in collaboration with, or commissioned by, NGOs and the equalities sector internationally.
