Economist: Should crimes involving racism carry stiffer penalties?

An Economist article asks ‘Should crimes involving racism carry stiffer penalties?’ Mark Walters, a criminologist at the University of Sussex who specialises in hate crimes, argues that they should, and that the formal system of aggravated offences sends a strong message denouncing racism.

‘Should crimes involving racism carry stiffer penalties?’ was published in the Economist on 24 August 2017.
