MONITORING AND REPORTING ONLINE HATE SPEECH IN EUROPE

The eMORE project aims to contribute to developing, testing and transferring a knowledge model on online hate speech and offline hate crime, based on a circular and advanced joint monitoring-reporting system, to gain a sound understanding of the phenomena/trends over the Internet and offline, to allow comparative analysis at national/EU level, and to support the harmonised combating against hate-motivated offences at EU/national level.

The Project will develop a knowledge platform available to target groups, which will allow to in-depth analyse hate phenomena online/offline. The platform will process data/information collected through a crawler to monitor the Internet and a APP to report crime. Both of them will be developed by the Project, too. The APP will be tested in 9 participating countries.

The knowledge base will include the most important categories of hate motivated offences (hate against gender, race, religion, sexual orientation and disability).

Objectives

  • To develop/test an innovative tool to automatically
    detect/monitor online hate speech.

  • To develop/test a multi-level reporting
    tool (APP) for hate crime.

  • To develop/test a comprehensive circular knowledge model, based on the integration between the data/information collected through the monitoring and reporting tools developed by the Project.

  • To promote the engagement of victims/witnesses/bystanders
    through their access to the APP.

  • To promote networking/cooperation among
    stakeholders and to empower them.

  • To enhance visibility and dissemination of results, thus supporting transfer to EU MS and sustainability.
