Race & Ethnicity

The scope of the Partnership’s work continues to broaden and diversify – in recent years we  have undertaken a number of pieces of work around issues originating from cultural, social or racial differences or discrimination.

These have included work and events around forced marriage and honour based crimes (acts of violence, often  murder, committed primarily by male family members against female family members, who are held to have brought dishonour upon the family) as well as hate crime (when a perpetrator targets a victim because of his or her perceived membership in a certain social group).

Hate Crime

Recent years have seen an increasing recognition that many offences are based on prejudice or hatred.

Honour Based Violence and Forced Marriage

There is often only one chance to recognise when a young person is at risk of honour based violence and respond accordingly.
