The general objective of the project is to identify and analyze how the hate speech against the ‘ideology of gender’ has been appropriated by extreme right political parties in Europe using the social networks and internet. It also aims to propose which type of legal and public policies the Member States and the European Union can implement to protect the human rights at stake.
Within the scope of specific project objectives, GENHA will:
Map where, when and how the extreme right political parties use the hate speech against gender theories through the social networks in the participating countries
Analyze the content of this hate speech against gender theories and its political use and justification
Identify the national and European legal frameworks to address this type of hate speech
Identify and analyze the European and national case law dealing with these cases
Identify and study possible self-regulations and norms of the social networks where these hate speeches take place
Propose legal interventions and public policies to address this type of hate speech
In order to deliver the abovementioned objectives, GENHA will undertake the following activities:
Analysis of the most important bibliography and studies
Study of the European and national legal framework and public policies
Analysis of the self-regulations of Facebook and Twitter
Qualitative and qualitative analysis of hate speech against gender
