Press/Media: Expert Comment


Hate crimes are massively under reported, making it all the more difficult for police and other authorities to make an impact on the issue. Now, researchers have devised techniques that could result in much more accurate estimates.


Christmann is a Research Fellow at the University of Huddersfield’s Applied Criminology Center and he has been working on the issue of hate crime and how to estimate its true level for several years.

With his co-researcher Dr. Kevin Wong — also a member of the ACC— he has authored “Hate Crime Victimization” that will appear as a chapter in a soon-published book titled Handbook on Victims Issues in Criminal Justice.
