MAPPING RESPONSES TO ETHNICALLY-MOTIVATED HATE CRIMES IN POST-CONFLICT SOCIETIES

The institutions developed for the protection of minority rights, and particularly security mechanisms, are important not just for addressing specific security concerns of minorities, but in also for promoting a broader sense of inclusion and well-being. The classification of crimes and incidents that the victim perceives as being ethnically motivated as general crime (for example vandalism, theft) have a significant negative impact on security perceptions. This area of research aims to go beyond investigating the institutional and legal frameworks of minority security protection mechanisms and additionally focuses on how they operate in practice and how they are perceived by the affected communities.
