This brochure is developed for a large audience to explain what discrimination and hate speech are and where they lead to. The paper gives ten strategies to fight hate speech in everyday life and explains what the Council of Europe does about hate speech.
The brochure was developed as part of joint programmes co-funded by the European Union and the Council of Europe, the ‘Partnership for Good Governance’ and the Horizontal Facility for the Western Balkans and Turkey (HF), in particular the action ‘Promotion of diversity and equality in the Western Balkans’ (HF) and the project ‘Strengthening access to justice through non-judicial redress mechanisms for victims of discrimination, hate speech and hate crimes in the Eastern Partnership’.
This website is managed by the EU-funded Regional Communication Programme for the Eastern Neighbourhood ('EU NEIGHBOURS east’), which complements and supports the communication of the Delegations of the European Union in the Eastern partner countries, and works under the guidance of the European Commission’s Directorate-General for Neighbourhood Policy and Enlargement Negotiations, and the European External Action Service. EU NEIGHBOURS east is implemented by a B&S Europe-led consortium. It is part of the larger Neighbourhood Communication Programme (2020-2024) for the EU's Eastern and Southern Neighbourhood, which also includes 'EU NEIGHBOURS south’ project that runs the EU Neighbours portal.
