Changes in legislation and practice have led to a significant rise in the numbers of convicted Hate Crime Offenders. We have also seen a rise in the numbers of “TACT” or “radicalised” offenders sentenced since the 2006 amendments to the Terrorism Act of 2000. Working with both Hate Crime and TACT offenders poses new challenges to criminal justice professionals.

This one-day conference will bring together the latest research, practice and policy relating to working with Hate Crimes offenders and with those convicted of "radical" or "TACT" offences (those convicted under the Terrorism Act). Topics will explore the nature of these two types of offending, considering connections between them and the challenges presented to offender management and intervention. By considering ways to intervene with Hate Crimes Offenders and with TACT offenders, we will bring together two inter-related strands of work, recognising the need for agencies and organisations to develop effective partnerships, and identify challenges, trends, and future directions in tackling hate crime and extremism.
