Launch of BEHAVE project (SEE Beyond Hate: Learning and Acting to Counter Hate Speech Online in South East Europe)


In January 2020, the Centre of Social Informatics launched the BEHAVE project (SEE Beyond Hate: Learning and Acting to Counter Hate Speech Online in South East Europe). The project brings together three countries (Slovenia, Croatia, Serbia), and is coordinated by The Peace Institute. The project is co-financed by EU Justice Programme (Rights, Equality and Citizenship Programme (REC)).

The project aims at: 

  • identifying good practices and supporting mutual learning on countering hate speech online between state and non-state actors in the three countries;
  • understanding hate speech online, strengthening critical thinking and responding to dominant hate narratives in new media forms addressing particularly young users;
  • raising competencies of secondary school teachers for working with students in addressing hate speech online.
