This paper presents findings from the All Wales Hate Crime Project. Most hate crime research has focused on discrete victim-types in isolation. For the first time internationally this paper examines the psychological and physical impacts of hate crime across seven victim-types drawing on quantitative and qualitative data. It contributes to the hate crime debate in two significant ways: i) it provides the first look at the problem in Wales; and ii) it provides the first multi-victim-type analysis of hate crime, showing that impacts are not homogenous across victim groups. The paper provides empirical credibility to the impacts felt by hate crime victims on the margins who as Walklate (2011) and Moran (2014) argue have routinely struggled to gain support.
