Autumn School on Hate Speech - by UNICRI
Hate speech is a growing phenomenon across the world. As a manifestation of intolerance and hatred towards certain groups in society, hate speech is intertwined with hate crimes and discrimination, representing a threat to sustainable peace and social cohesion.
Because of the impact hate speech has on both on victims and societies at large, it is of utmost importance to address and counter it in a comprehensive way, at both individual and State level. Despite growing attention to hate speech, many still underestimate or do not fully grasp the consequences of it.
With these considerations in mind, UNICRI and the Italian Society for International Organization (SIOI) are launching the first edition of the Autumn School on Hate Speech, which will be delivered online, from 3 to 7 October 2022.
The course is intended for university and post-graduate students, Ph.D. candidates, media and other professionals, including United Nations (UN) personnel, as well as anyone interested in gaining an understanding of hate speech, how it manifests itself and what tools are available to combat it.
