Noting a correlation between hateful discourse online and actual hate crime the initiative seeks to help law-enforcement professionals and civil-society organizations better counter hate speech.
An initiative to fight hate crime was launched on Monday evening at the Google offices in Brussels. The project is a collaboration between the European Commission, social media giants Twitter and Facebook and Jewish NGO CEJI – A Jewish Contribution to an Inclusive Europe.
There is an emerging correlation between hateful discourse, which circulates quickly online, and hate crime - which includes harassment, vandalism and violence.EU member states are now accountable for recording bias-motivated crimes 1 and ensuring that victims have access to justice. The European Commission and IT companies have recognised the echo chamber provided by the internet in amplifying the spread of hate in society, resulting in the recently agreed Code of Conduct which should see a more effective response to take down and prosecute criminal hate speech online.
