Norsesnsus Mediaforum has become an official partner of the No Hate Speech Movement Online in Norway and started to work closely with the campaign coordinators.
An overflow of xenophobia, intolerance and discrimination inundates cyberspace: Hate Speech online has recently turned into a major form of human rights abuse, with serious consequences both online and offline. Spreading, inciting, justifying or promoting expressions of hatred amongst young people on internet has become a pressing challenge for today’s societies.
The Council of Europe’s answer to these compelling threats is the Youth project on combating Hate Speech Online, an initiative aiming at fighting racism and discrimination in the online articulation of hate speech. This is the No Hate Speech Movement, which started March 2012 and will last until end of 2014. The Campaign is part of the project Young People Combating Hate Speech Online running between 2012 and 2014. The project stands for equality, dignity, human rights and diversity. It is a project against hate speech, racism and discrimination in their online expression.
Norsensus Mediaforum is an official partner of the No Hate Speech Movement in Norway and works closely with the campaign coordinators. “The No Hate Speech campaign values are closely related to the mission of Norsensus, which is to help dvelopment of media literacy skills in the society, which is an important ingredient of the remedy for hate speech and discrimination.
