ADI/MSI-DIS Committee of Experts on Combating Hate Speech
The Committee of Experts will be preparing a draft Recommendation on a comprehensive approach to addressing hate speech within a Human Rights Framework.
This recommendation will be adopted by the Committee of Ministers and will provide non-binding guidance for member State. It will build on the relevant case-law of the European Court of Human Rights and will pay special attention to the online environment in which most of today’s hate speech can be found. The Committee may also prepare other practical tools for member States and other relevant stakeholders.

Due to the complex nature of hate speech the Expert Committee on Combating Hate Speech (ADI/MSI-DIS) is sub-ordinated to two Steering Committees: the Steering Committee on Anti-Discrimination and Inclusion (CDADI) and the Steering Committee on Media and Information Society (CDMSI).
Hate speech, whether online or offline, poses a threat to democracy and human rights. To address it constitutes an urgent challenge in all Council of Europe member States. The Council of Europe standards and practices related to addressing hate speech will guide the work of the expert committee.
