The Globalization of Hate
This chapter introduces the reader to some of the core themes of the book. It first observes that to date, much of the literature in the field of hate studies is jurisdictionally based, and dominated by scholarship emanating From the United States and the United Kingdom. The authors describe globalization as they understand it, and observe that the attacks in Paris and Denmark in 2015, and in Australia in 2014, and the rise of the militant group Islamic State combined with mass global migration create an environment in which identity-based hostilities and prejudice are spread. However, they note that globalization gives rise to opportunities in which hate can be challenged. In particular, an international approach to combating hate crime is discussed, and the authors describe how the book aims to explore some of these international responses.
