Disability Hate Crime: What Did We Already Know, What Is New?
This chapter takes the data revealed in Chaps. 3, 4 and 5 and aligns it with established academic research. The objective here is to ascertain if the experiences of victims and the behaviours of abusers broadly align with that in founded research studies. Aside from focusing on the techniques of abuse and the shorter- and longer-term impacts of abuse, the chapter will additionally explore the acts of collaboration and bystander non-intervention which have been revealed through my research. As well as established research, this chapter will disclose a new explanatory framework to explicate why previously unoffending fellow passengers collaborate in the abuse of disabled people. Collaborative Alimentation Theory is, in itself, new, although it is built on the shoulders of established theorisation.
