Webinar (CPRLV): On the frontiers of hate : Understanding and preventing online hate

While new alternative social media have attracted a growing number of extremist groups and individuals due to their lack of content moderation, we are increasingly confronted with complex virtual worlds organized around hateful signs, symbols and expressions. This training offers, first, an answer to the central question: what is hateful and what is not? The CPRLV proposes a conceptual framework to address the phenomenon: participants will be introduced to the concepts of hate-motivated acts, crimes, incidents and speech. Then, a reflection on the various mechanisms and strategies deployed online to disseminate violent and hateful speech will be proposed. The training will also introduce various types and forms of extremist or hateful content found on social media platforms, and reflect on existing and possible solutions to address online hate outbursts.

Specific objectives :

Describe the current social and political context in which online hate occurs
Identify hate-motivated acts
Distinguish between the motives for using social networks and the strategies for circumventing moderation systems
Identify existing tools and means to counter online hate
