The project “Hate Speech” of FBK-ISR presented in Paris

06 September 2017

In the frame of the project of FBK-ISR “Hate Speech”, within the research line Conflicts, Maria Chiara Giorda’s paper Discours de haine et contre-narrations addresses one of the new tools for fighting against stereotypes linked to religion: the analysis of online “hate speech” and the creation of counter-narratives, which reflect our mission “Religions and Innovation”.

These educational paths have two objectives:

  1. preventing processes of violent radicalization based on religion
  2. contrasting the diffusion of stereotypes and prejudices which feed, in particular, “islamophobia” and the manifestation of hatred towards Muslim people
