The Hate Crimes Working Group (HCWG), a multisectoral network of civil society organisations that cover a cross-section of vulnerable sectors and people at risk of becoming victims of prejudice-motivated attacks, collaboratively developed the Hate and Bias Crime Monitoring Form following a four-year period of extensive consultation beginning in 2009. The Monitoring Form was subsequently used in a five-year (2013 – 2017) longitudinal research study in five provinces of South Africa to gauge the types, nature and impact of hate crimes perpetrated against individuals and communities in those provinces, namely the Eastern Cape, Gauteng, KwaZulu-Natal, Limpopo, and Western Cape.
