religious discrimination

The Hate Crimes Project will present new Scottish research on concepts of “hate” crime. It will also provide short summaries, discussion and artwork from multimedia projects.

The site is partially funded by a grant from the Royal Society of Edinburgh and at present it contains links and findings from research carried out, some with colleagues, funded by the RSE, the Clark Foundation and the Scottish Centre for Criminal Justice Research, all of whose support is gratefully acknowledged.

Series of anti-bullying materials that provide guidance and practical solutions on preventing and responding to incidents of bullying in schools.

It includes a brief overview document and and detailed guidance on five areas of bullying: bullying around race, religion and culture; bullying around special educational needs and disabilities; cyber bullying; homophobic bullying; and sexist, sexual and transphobic bullying.

Report that presents key findings from a study of public attitudes towards discrimination and positive action. Based on data from the Scottish Social Attitudes survey (SSA), the study aimed to:

• Measure the extent and character of discriminatory attitudes in Scotland in 2010
• Assess the extent of support for positive action to try and achieve equality for different groups
• Examine how attitudes have changed over time.

Commissioned report by Equality and Human Rights Commission that aims to identify and review: • Quantitative and qualitative evidence of religious discrimination • Any evidence about whether religious discrimination is increasing or decreasing • Any differences in evidence between England, Wales and Scotland • ‘Islamophobia’ as a frame of reference for discrimination against Muslims • Gaps in the existing research and statistical evidence.

After the formation of the Equality and Human Rights Commission in October 2007, Ethnic Britain (originally launched in 2002) changed its name to Equality Britain, covering all aspects of equality.
