This report is part of a series on race and citizenship in post-apartheid South Africa. It draws on international experiences of hate crime to investigate commonalities and differences with the South African context, thus grappling with local violent expressions of prejudice. It touches on social representations and public perceptions of hate crime and considers media reporting. Although racially motivated hatred is the primary focus of the report, the notion ‘hate crime’ goes beyond racism and, as such, offers an organising principle for discussing prejudice and violence.
