This Report makes recommendations in relation to the introduction of provisions that address criminal racial vilification and racially motivated offences. The project was referred from the Vice-Chancellor of the University of Tasmania in July 2009. The Board of the Tasmania Law Reform Institute accepted the reference in August 2009. The publication of this Report is made following the release of an Issues Paper in June 2010 and subsequent consultations. The Issues Paper considered the extent of racism and racist behaviour in Tasmania and Australia and asked whether reforms were needed to address this behaviour.
