And Dr Singh:

"I have been involved in action research on hate crimes for the past 7 years. This has involved working with victims, perpetrators, members of the community and professionals from a wide range of agencies. My work has been disseminated through workshops, publications and conference presentations. The most recent project involved working with Alison Quigley to develop a hate crime resource pack for front line professionals, which is being adopted in Coventry and further afield"
