    This briefing paper is one of a series on faith, belief and belonging in London. The papers are published jointly by The Faith & Belief Forum (formerly 3FF) and the Department of Psychosocial Studies, Birkbeck, University of London. On 17 May 2018, 23 local organisations, academics and policy experts gathered at Birkbeck College to understand better the impact of hate crime on faith groups and local communities in London, and to share good practice from local initiatives responding to hate crime. The discussion on the day addressed important questions about hate crime, faith and belonging: • What is hate crime and how does it differ from other types of crime and violence? What is religious hate crime and how does it relate to racial and other types of hate crime? • Who are the primary victims and perpetrators of religious hate crime? • What are the main causes of the increase of reported hate crimes? • What are the impacts of hate crime on belonging for faith groups and people in local communities? • Which projects and initiatives are addressing hate crimes at the local level? What makes these projects effective? • How are these projects creating a sense of belonging to individuals and communities affected by hate crimes?
