‘I may yet be left with no choice but to seek an ending to my torment’: disability and intersectionalities of hate crime

MacDonald, S.J and Donovan, C and Clayton, J (2021) '‘I may yet be left with no choice but to seek an ending to my torment’: disability and intersectionalities of hate crime.', Disability and Society .

Abstract

This article contributes to the growing literature concerning Disability Hate Studies. The study employs the concept of intersectionality and examines experiences of hate crimes recorded as racist or homophobic but where the victims/survivors also have a disability or mental health condition. The data was derived from 33 case-studies. Although very few hate incidents/crimes were conceptualised as disablist, disability played a significant role in the experiences of victims/survivors. The article proposes that criminal justice agencies should move away from understanding hate crime as a singular interaction to conceptualising the possibility that this can become a harmful hate relationship that progresses overtime.
