Welcome to the website of the International Network for Hate Studies!

The INHS aims to provide an accessible forum through which individuals and groups can engage with the study of hate and hate crime in a manner which is both scholarly and accessible to all. Academics, students, advocates and those working in the public and NGO sector can contribute through posting on the Network’s blog, and by attending conferences run by the Network.

If you work in the area of hate studies, and wish to be part of the Network, contribute to the Blog or attend one of our events, please contact us. Blog postings are available here and are disseminated through our Facebook page and Twitter account, and you can ensure you don’t miss anything by subscribing to our blog feed.

The INHS’ inaugural conference was held on the 8-9th of May 2014, at the University of Sussex, click here for more information about the conference including recordings of the plenary presentations.
