Active European Citizens against Hate Speech

Active European Citizens against Hate Speech

The aim of the project is to raise awareness of the new generation of European citizens about the impact of hate speech on democratic participation and European values. Hate speech is often used as a tool to target different vulnerable groups, especially minorities, immigrants and refugees. It causes their alienation and exclusion which leads to marginalisation. Such narratives weakens democracy and strengthens positions of far right and radical right populists and Eurosceptics.
