Stop Hate Speech

The freedom to form opinions and an open debate are among the core values of a free society. However, social media and below-the-line commentary on news platforms have lowered the threshold for hostility on the internet. Women and young people are often disproportionately affected by this.

Networking to stop that line from being crossed

With the support of the Migros Pioneer fund, the Stop Hate Speech project is doing pioneering work on this new phenomenon. The Bot Dog algorithm goes out onto the internet to track down any hate speech. At the same time, Stop Hate Speech is developing a digital contact point offering information to those affected. Checklists will help assess where lines have been crossed, define concepts and identify options for action. This will strengthen media competence and contribute to better sensitising of the population.
