This chapter opens with an outline of historical and definitional issues in genocide and hate crime. Each construct is framed within a legal context and an example is given. We then move to a discussion of the socio-cognitive and psychological processes that have been drawn on to explain these crimes. These processes will be considered both at the individual and group level. The chapter then considers how insights from psychological theory have influenced interventions - for both victims and offenders - and responses to hate crime and genocide. We conclude with a summary and a set of recommendations for future research and action.
