WE CAN for human rights speech

The project is being implemented by a consortium led by the Council of Europe’s No Hate Speech and Co-operation Unit which supports member states and NGOs to address hate speech, hate crime and discrimination through a range of co-operation projects.

Activities include:

Research on how to identify situations most likely to generate waves of hate speech, and on timing and ways of engaging in counter and alternative narratives to have maximum impact. The results will help activists and NGOs be prepared for action and be more effective;
Development of toolkits and trainings to analyse hate speech, develop human rights-based narratives and communication strategies;
Organising trainings for trainers;
Organising thematic seminars on ways to counter some of the most common forms of hate speech, antisemitic, anti-Muslim or anti-Roma discourse.
Launching and monitoring short human rights based narrative campaigns.
