Műhelyvita Pap András László Neglect, marginalization and abuse: hate crime legislation and practice in the labyrinth of identity politics, minority protection and penal populism című tanulmányáról
Using Hungary as a case study, and focusing on legislative policies and practical application patterns of hate crimes, this article shows the various ways legal policy can be misguided in the labyrinth of identity politics, minority protection, and penal populism. The first mistake states can make, the author argues, is not to adopt hate crime legislation. The second error arguably pertains to conceptualizing hate crimes as an identity-protection and not a minority protection mechanism and instrument. The third fallacy the author identifies concerns legislative and practical policies that conceptualize victims based on self-identification and not the perpetrator’s (or the wider community’s) potential perception and classification. The fourth misguided case concerns the abuse of the concept of hate crime when it is applied in interethnic conflicts when members of minority communities are perpetrators and the victims are members of the majority; and the fifth: institutional discrimination through the systematic underpolicing of hate crimes.
