Follow-up on the Stop Hate Speech project
25. June 2021
Several of our community members are investigating the prevalence of hate speech on Twitter in Switzerland and strategies to counter it.
Prof. Fabrizio Gilardi (UZH), Prof. Karsten Donnay (UZH), Dr. Ana Kotarcic (UZH) and Prof. Dominik Hangartner (ETH) are part of the hate speech project and contribute to analysing the spread of hate speech on Twitter and testing systematic strategies for effective counter-speech. In a second part of the project, experimental interventions will be used to test the effectiveness of different counter-speech strategies.
The project is a collaboration between alliance F (Swiss women’s organisation), the Digital Democracy Lab (UZH) and the Immigration Policy Lab (ETH) and is funded by the Federal Office of Communications (BAKOM).
