Research – Report – Remove: Countering Cyber Hate Phenomena

The EU-project Research – Report – Remove: Countering Cyber Hate Phenomena (2016-2017), developed by the International Network Against Cyber Hate (INACH), aims to provide a solid basis to draw sound conclusions on the concept of cyber hate.

Systemic knowledge about the phenomenon, its origins and sources, as well as forms and influences will be gathered through comparative research. By this cooperation, the project partners will jointly gather evidence about current trends in cyber hate and subsequently identify EU wide dynamics.

Furthermore, the project aims at developing standards to document and analyse cyber hate and to improve takedown procedures.

This will be done by establishing guidelines for Internet Service Providers (ISPs) and social network sites as well as by providing support and advice to the political, legal and educational communities.

Establishing a central contact point will help to develop a sustainable and effective cross-border online complaint mechanism available worldwide to all users from their home or mobile device.

Regularly undertaken monitoring activities shall furthermore help developing an early warning system by continuously observing and analysing hateful content on the internet.

The project partners will particularly focus on the monitoring of antisemitism, hate against Roma and Sinti, hate against Muslims and homophobia.
