The public consultation on the draft text of the Committee of Ministers Recommendation on Combating Hate Speech is open from 23 June to 8 August 2021.

This recommendation will provide non-binding guidance for member States and other key stakeholders on comprehensive approach to addressing hate speech within a human rights framework. 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.
