Imagine an Internet Free From Hate...It’s Easy If You Try: A strategy workshop on combating gender-based hate speech online

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule, view media, leave feedback and see who's attending!

Opening with two 5-minute lightning talks by IT for Change and InternetLab on their reflections about the contextual manifestations and key challenges of addressing gender-based hate speech online in India and Brazil, this session seeks to catalyse an open brainstorming and an informed and engaged multistakeholder dialogue amongst participants, to strengthen our collective understanding on the following issues: a. Mapping the specific gaps in current knowledge about how intersecting gender and social prejudice in different contexts leads to specific manifestations of online hate speech and identification of areas for future research in this domain b. Exchange of ideas on legal, policy and community action, to address this issue, including: - overhaul of legal frameworks (How can pre-digital laws on gender-based violence as well as digital rights tackle the issue?) - articulation of the roles and responsibilities of Internet intermediaries (How can social media platforms step up context-sensitive application of global community standards?) We solicit participation from all stakeholders - civil society actors, representatives of Internet intermediaries, technical community members, and also government officials.
