The fourth installment of our roundtable series will focus on the themes behind online hate and incitement to violence on the basis of religious belief and some recommendations to address these issues for civil society, government, and platforms.
The Digital Peace Project seeks to contribute to national efforts to mitigate online hate while respecting freedom of speech. It will accomplish this by engaging with civil society actors, particularly those belonging to ethnic, cultural, religious and visible minority communities. More precisely, the project aims to increase the capacity of ethnic and cultural communities to address online racism and discrimination by centering the perspectives and opinions of those communities while exploring ideas for solutions.
