Event Information

Hate speech causes harm at the personal level and undermines the fulfilment of human rights for all. Join us to learn more about the pioneering toolkit that Minority Rights Group developed with partners across the world. The toolkit provides practical advice and tips to civil society on how to counter hate speech.

Following presentations from each speaker about their experience in challenging hate speech, there will be a Q&A during which attendees can ask questions and engage in a discussion about the toolkit, further examples and generally the challenges of fighting hate speech online and offline.
