Background

What is online hate speech?
Online hate speech are texts, words, images, videos and symbols that are used to spread hate, threats and incite violence through in the Internet against a person or a group. The growing intolerance and xenophobia is concerning, and hate speech has become increasingly present in the public, especially on the internet. Young people are some of the most active users of new technology and social media, and are directly concerned as both agents and victims of online hate speech.
