Workshop 7:

Educational strategies for online hate speech awareness, prevention and reaction



In the final workshop of the series, we will discuss how education practice and research can react to the challenge posed by the spread of online hate speech, and its unprecedented accessibility.
Educational resources in the area of hate ideologies awareness abound, produced as part of national school curricula or outreach programmes of museums, charities and other institutions. Many are of excellent quality; however, there are identifiable gaps in the available materials, and a certain routine in their approach. Crucially, few seem to cover the specific topic of contemporary hate speech in mainstream online spaces, or to respond to the changing world of online experiences and to the evolving professional practices.
How can academic research findings be translated into practical guidelines and resources? What strategies can ensure that hate speech awareness, prevention and reaction are relevant to the target group and reflect the specific issues of contemporary hate speech?
