This article will examine the role of hate crime in situations of ethno-national conflict. It will examine the nature of violence used in ethno-national conflict before going on to examine some of the factors that may limit the incidence or visibility of hate crime in cases of ethnic conflict. These factors include the dynamic of the conflict, ethnic segregation, and paramilitary monopolization of violence. The article will also examine the impact of peace processes, or attempts to reach political settlements in ethno-national conflicts, on hate crime. It will conclude by highlighting some of the contextual differences between the United States and other deeply divided societies in relation to hate crime.
