No Hate Speech Movement

The Council of Europe’s campaign against online hate speech, the No Hate Speech Movement campaign, is designed to raise awareness of the hate speech problem, change attitudes towards it and mobilise young people to act against it. The project stands for equality, dignity, human rights and diversity and it is part of the Council of Europe’s wider effort to promote human rights in cyberspace. The campaign is initiated and run by the Council of Europe but it is based on national campaigns currently run in 40 states. The campaign was launched on 22 March 2013 and runs until 2017.

Hate speech, as defined by the Council of Europe, covers all forms of expression which spread, incite, promote or justify racial hatred, xenophobia, anti-Semitism or other forms of hatred based on intolerance, including: intolerance expressed by aggressive nationalism and ethnocentrism, discrimination and hostility against minorities, migrants and people of immigrant origin.
