Abstract

The sharp increase in hate crime that was recorded in the aftermath of the Brexit vote was more pronounced in pro-Remain areas, write Facundo Albornoz, Jake Bradley, and Silvia Sonderegger. They write that this was because the referendum was a source of new information about society’s overall preferences over immigration, enabling those holding anti-immigrant sentiments but living in areas which are generally supportive of diversity to externalise their views.
