Campaign Objectives

The objective of the campaign is twofold:

1)Through an online campaign, we aim to inform netizens of their rights when subjects of online hate, and available support services in the case of victimisation.

2) Resources produced for the online campaign will be used as part of a workshop, conducted by VSE to our member organisations, in order to train victim support professionals on how to respond to, and support, victims of online hate speech.

We have adopted a drop-down approach by which we will start by explaining the legal context and relative European legislation regarding online hate speech, the moving onto measures of protection, next what is being done by social media platforms, and finishing with the realities on the frontline.
