Meeting Description:

Interdisciplinary conference on Hate speech: Definitions, Interpretations and
Practices 
9-11 June 2017 at the University of Cyprus 
Conference Language: English 

Hate speech can be broadly defined as “degrading, threatening, harassing or
stigmatizing speech which affects an individual’s or a group’s dignity,
reputation and status in society by means of linguistic and visual effects
that promote negative feelings, attitudes and perceptions based on
characteristics such as ethnicity, religion, gender, disability, sexual
orientation, gender expression, gender identity and age” (Norway's equality
and anti-discrimination Ombud 2015: 5).  The aim of this conference is to
stimulate dialogue across disciplines and perspectives and to consider
different methods and tools when approaching hate speech and hate crime.

The aim of this conference is to stimulate dialogue across disciplines and
perspectives and to consider different methods and tools when approaching hate
speech.  
It is organized under the auspices of an EU DG Justice funded project on hate
crime and hate speech (C.O.N.T.A.C.T, www.reportinghate.eu) and offers an
opportunity to bring together researchers, teachers, trainers, NGOs and other
relevant bodies interested in issues of definitions, interpretations and
practices in relation to hate speech. Theoretical research, applied research,
and experience from the field are targeted in this conference.
 
Keynote speakers include:  

- Prof. Dimitris Christopoulos, President of the International Federation for
Human Rights and Associate Professor at Panteion University of Athens
- Prof. Paul Iganski, University of Lancaster
- Izabela Kisić, Executive Director of the Helsinki Committee for Human
Rights in Serbia, Associate in C.O.N.T.A.C.T. programme
- Prof. Andreas Musolff, University of East Anglia 
 
Three tracks have been defined, all focusing on the theme of the conference:
Hate speech: Definitions, Interpretations and Practices  

- Track 1 : Legislation, legal discourses and legal practices across Europe
focused on hate speech  
- Track 2 : Performance of hate speech online, e.g. on social media, comments
to newspapers, etc. (including direct and indirect means, role of
multimodality)   
- Track 3 : Pedagogy and hate speech (practices and / or research focused on
educating people about hate speech and strategies for tackling it)   

In parallel, there will be a workshop for NGOs to discuss aims, objectives,
methodology and activities that can be used with target groups such as young
people, law enforcement agencies, competent authorities and media for purposes
of raising awareness on hate speech, its meaning and consequences. A
particular focus of the workshop will be placed on the use of non-formal
education.
