Hate speech online

 

Neo-Nazis are extremely successful with social media. While right-wing activists encounter more and more resistance in the real public space, they increasingly use the internet as a forum, where it doesn’t take much to spread their racist worldview. Hiding behind innocuous-seeming identities and campaigns, they can appear less harmful than they really are. As such, online hate speech has become one of the Foundation’s specialties.

In particular with its platform no-nazi.net, the Foundation monitors and evaluates neo-Nazi campaigns and activities on social media platforms such as Facebook and Twitter. The invaluable data collected is used to raise awareness and provide to schools, communities and other organizations to act against these movements. Teachers, parents and their children have the chance to share ideas and experiences within a safe, Nazi-free social network. Google, Facebook and German social media firms support this initiative, as well as
major Foundations such as the Freudenberg Foundation and the Robert Bosch Foundation, and the German Federal Ministry for Family, Seniors, Women and Youth.
