The Leicester Centre for Hate Studies

As a result of conducting the Leicester Hate Crime Project and our ongoing work with a range of professionals from different environments we recognised the need for a Centre which could help organisations respond to hate offences and some of the other challenges relevant to an increasingly diverse and multicultural society.

Based within the University of Leicester's highly regarded Department of Criminology, the Leicester Centre of Hate Studies is a new centre designed toBleeding Eye bridge the gap between academic research and professional practice.

With hate, prejudice and extremism having increasing relevance to multiple fields of work, the Leicester Centre for Hate Studies aims to become a key driver of knowledge exchange and information sharing between academics, practitioners, activists and policy-makers.


The Centre will be delivering a range of services and activities, including:

  • Continuing Professional Development (CPD), consultancy, evaluation and training
  • Research on issues of regional, national and international significance
  • Conferences, seminars and practitioner-orientated workshops
  • An academic network for cross-disciplinary debate and knowledge exchange
  • Opportunities for personal development and further study, including the supervision of PhD research
  • The production of educational resources such as short films, audio material and written reports
