Event Title

Challenging Canadian Multiculturalism: The Community Effects of Hate Crime

Streaming Media

Description

A surprisingly under-explored dimension of hate crime is the impact that is has not only on the immediate victim, but on the broader community. Based on a number of related projects, the lecture explores some of these key effects, with particular emphasis on the implications of such violence for Canadian multiculturalism. Hate crimes are direct threats to the principles of multiculturalism, and have the potential to present obstacles to the ability or willingness of affected communities to engage in civic life. The lecture thus aims to uncover the ways in which hate crime challenges the much heralded "policy" of multiculturalism in Canada.
