In addition, participants will learn how they can take part in the campaign and will develop together actions and initiatives in the framework of the campaign.
- “Applying the UN Rabat Plan of Action”
Speakers from the United Nations Human Rights Office (OHCHR) will present how the threshold test of the Rabat Plan of Action has been used in practice, including by the UN, audio-visual authorities and social media companies (www.ohchr.org/en/freedom-of-expression). The interactive session will also be an opportunity to discuss and apply the Rabat threshold test to a case scenario on hate speech by political and religious leaders during the pandemic.
- “Using the On-line Observatory on Hate Speech”
Gathering data about hate speech is essential, given the overwhelming volume of online activity. But how can AI be used ethically, transparently and for societal good? This workshop will look at why and how the European Observatory of Online Hate uses data, and how to make it accessible to the general public via stakeholders like civil society, law, campaigning and academic organisations.
