On Wednesday 8 May Barbara Perry, Professor and Associate Dean of Social Science and Humanities at the University of Ontario Institute of Technology, will give the next Scarman Lecture for the Department of Criminology. She has written extensively on hate crime, including several books on the topic, among them, In the Name of Hate: Understanding Hate Crime; and Hate and Bias Crime: A Reader.

While not as prevalent in Canada as in the US or UK, Islamophobic violence continues to affect Muslims in Canada. The consequences of this violence on victims and non-victims alike are daunting, and range from elevated fear of victimization, to withdrawal, to behavioural changes, to disillusionment with Canada. Drawing on a cluster of surveys, interviews and focus groups, this paper begins to paint a picture of these wide-ranging impacts.
