Incitement to Discrimination, Hostility and Violence: A Comparative Analysis
25 Mar 2021 | Online
ODIHR/OSCE is organizing a Side Event on “Incitement to Discrimination, Hostility and Violence: A Comparative Analysis” at the ASIL Annual Meeting.
While digital technology is a huge opportunity to communicate across countries and cultures, it unfortunately also has the ability to spread disinformation, hatred, and incitement to violence. Since the outbreak of the COVID19 pandemic, we have seen hatred spreading as minority and marginalized communities have found themselves scapegoated and in some cases even become victims of targeted violence and hatecrime. Join us for a discussion around legal frameworks on incitement to discrimination, hostility and violence as well as freedom of expression!
