Intersectionality in victims’ experiences of hate incidents

Project Synopsis

Title: Intersectionality in victims’ experiences of hate incidents

The objectives of this project are to: (1) Gain insight into victims’ experiences of hate incidents that manifest prejudices against two or more identity groups (2) Gain insight into the diversity of experience within a single identity group based on variation in manifestations of hate according to the membership’s other personal characteristics. (3) Examine the impact of intersectionality on victim’s experiences of support services and organisations. 

We will produce an empirical analysis of the manner in which the intersection of multiple identities impacts victims’ experiences of hate incidents, an empirical analysis of the manner in which the intersection of multiple identities impacts, and an analysis of the explanatory power of intersectional theory in understanding victims’ experiences of hate incidents. As part of the project, the ESR will work with Doras on secondment, where they will develop a bespoke and victim-oriented training package for support services and organisations interacting with victims of intersectional hate incidents.
