Understanding Hatred, Confronting Intolerance, Eliminating Inequality
A collaboration of the 3rd International Conference on Hate Studies and
the 2nd Conference on Race and the Criminal Justice System
Sponsored by the Gonzaga University School of Law, the Gonzaga University Institute for Hate Studies, and the Washington State Task Force on Race and the Criminal Justice System.
This conference brings together the leading interdisciplinary academic forum on hate and directly related social problems with the combined social justice leadership of the Gonzaga Law School and the Washington Task Force on Race and the Criminal Justice System.
This pairing provides opportunities to align interests in understanding and addressing fear and ignorance of the “other” with interests in how these conditions manifest in hatred, intolerance, and inequality. The conversation will be centered around how these problems affect the pursuit of justice.
Of special interest is the matter of racial inequality in the criminal justice system, among broader concerns within the conference theme, as approached through the lenses of research, education, practice, and advocacy. We anticipate receiving Washington and Idaho CLE credit for this event.
This conference will bring together and engage members of academia and other education circles, the legal community, government, and non-governmental organizations, as well as policy experts, journalists, human rights leaders, community organizers, and engaged global citizens. We anticipate richly interdisciplinary, cross-sector participation from international, national, and regional audiences.
Select conference proceedings will be published in The Journal of Hate Studies, the international interdisciplinary peer-review scholarly journal operated by the Gonzaga University Institute for Hate Studies. Publication opportunities through the Gonzaga Law Review may be available as well.
Gonzaga Law is an American Bar Association Accredited Institution.
