Their expertise has made a significant contribution to the field, which has previously focused on a North American context. 

Their published book Hate Crime: Impact, Causes and Responses (2009) offered the most comprehensive examination to date of hate crime in a British context and provided important new insights on theHate Crime 2009subject. Their expertise has been sought by a large number of media channels, such as Science Daily, BBC radio shows and the BBC news-site.  

They have also gained prominent media attention for their comments on racism in rural Britain. It was covered by the Daily Mail, Metro, Asian News International, Curbed NY, Western Daily Press, and the Western Morning Press. 

In addition to pursuing their own academic interests separately, they continue researching the subject of hate crime and related issues, and work closely with a variety of national and regional organisations, such as the Equality and Human Rights Commission, police forces, prisons, local authorities and partnership networks, in order to forge closer links between scholarship and policy.
