Hate crime is on the rise, prompting the government to publish an updated Hate Crime Action Plan in July. Among other things, the Action Plan aims to ‘improve support for victims’ and the RJC is exploring what role restorative justice can play in achieving this. This article focuses on a particular case in Manchester, where the police used restorative justice in response to a hate crime incident and was previously featured in issue 58 of Resolution.
