In recent years, society and public institutions have increasingly taken a strong stance against hate crimes, leading to various actions and the implementation of specific laws to combat this troubling phenomenon. As a result, there has been a notable rise in reported incidents and subsequent convictions for such offenses. The field of prison administration has also been deeply concerned with addressing this issue, aiming to provide and tailor intervention programs that consider the unique characteristics and specific risk factors of convicted individuals. As part of this effort, the "Diversity Program: Promoting Equal Treatment and Non-Discrimination, and Combating Hate Crimes" has been recently developed. However, for this intervention program to be truly effective, it is crucial to have a comprehensive understanding of the criminal profiles involved.
