A report provided findings from a project that examined hate crime, looking at: people's experiences of hate, prejudice, and targeted hostility; the physical and emotional harms suffered by victims and their families; and ways in which to improve the quality of support offered to victims. A series of briefings were published alongside the main findings, together with a 'manifesto', which set out victim-centred recommendations based on the needs and expectations of those whose lives had been directly affected by hate crime.

An article examined deaths with a known or suspected racial element in the United Kingdom since the publication of the Macpherson Report in 1999. It said that particular groups of black and minority-ethnic people were at risk (asylum-seekers, new migrants, students, and those working in the night-time economy), and that over-strict interpretation of the legal provisions for racial motivation might inhibit the charging of perpetrators and might remove the racial context of a crime from the court room. The article also questioned whether earlier intervention might have prevented some deaths.
