Home Affairs Committee

Hate crime and its violent consequences inquiry

Inquiry status: open

Inquiry launched on 23 October 2017. Oral evidence ongoing.

Scope of the inquiry

In the last Parliament the Home Affairs Committee conducted a wide-ranging inquiry into ‘Hate crime and its violent consequences’. The inquiry was cut short by the June General Election but the Committee was able to publish a report in May 2017 on Abuse, hate and extremism online, which focused on the role of social media companies in addressing hate crime and illegal content on their platforms.

The new Committee in the current Parliament has resumed the hate crime inquiry.
