Title: Rethinking newcomer and minority offending and victimization: beyond hate crimes


1
Rethinking newcomer and minority offending and
victimization beyond hate crimes
  • Metropolis Justice, Policing and Security
    Seminar Building an Empirical Evidence February
    25, 2008 Ottawa, Ontario

Derek Janhevich Melanie Bania Ross Hastings
2
Main structure of the discussion paper
  • Outline current government sponsored efforts
    General Social Survey on Victimization Pilot
    Survey on police-reported hate crimes and changes
    to Uniform Crime Reporting Survey Ethnic
    Diversity Survey
  • Despite these efforts, concept of hate crime
    still problematic and much of the research has
    been largely descriptive and exploratory
  • Need to take a broader stance to understand risk
    and protective factors
  • The case of Toronto guns, gangs, vulnerable
    groups and neighbourhoods

What we know and need to know

Pulling the pieces together a conceptual
approach

Conclusions and Recommendations
  • Not all discrimination and racism is hate crime
    generalizing may lead to improper policy
    responses which rely only on criminal justice
    system
  • A better understanding of the risk, protective,
    situational and systemic factors
  • Current understanding is too descriptive and
    exploratory
  • Municipalities, neighbourhoods and communities
    are not generic therefore diagnostics need to be
    more local
  • Need to re-think the role of the criminal justice
    system
  • CJS not equipped to deal with existing tensions
  • More focus on municipally and community driven
    solutions
