This report describes the first attempt at a systematic investigation of what theaforementioned public authorities in Britain are doing to eliminate targetedharassment directed at people on the grounds of age, disability, gender, race,religion or belief, sexual orientation or transgender status.An online survey was developed to enable public authorities in England, Scotlandand Wales to self-report their actions and received a total of 213 completedresponses. The survey was supplemented by detailed qualitative interviews with asmall sample of authorities. It is not possible to generalise from the survey findings to give a statistically accurate picture of the situation across Britain, or make meaningful comparisons between England, Scotland and Wales. Rather, the research provides invaluable insight into public authority activity on targeted harassment for the first time.
