Violent Extremism in the 21st Century: International Perspectives. 2018, 244-270
Hate crime is a fluid category that has been constructed and implemented in a variety of ways within the legal system and in political discourse. As hate crime policies have been developed in many divergent directions across the globe, the outcomes they generate are likely to be rather diverse and conflicting. This paper situates the Norwegian configuration of hate crime legislation, policy and political discourse among key international debates on the topic. It analyses political and legislative debates that occurred in Norway prior to the implementation of its updated hate crime legislation in 2015.
