Fact Sheets Including Monitoring of Hate Speech Data from 2023 Now Available

Fifth fact sheets including monitoring data from January-November 2023 are now available. The fact sheets present data and draw conclusions on SafeNet project monitoring efforts in 2023. In this monitoring period, partners reported continuous problems with reporting as a regular user in most countries. The SafeNet partners continue to report that trusted flagger status must be revoked for hateful comments to be addressed/removed.

European partners are implementing a 24-month project SafeNet: Monitoring and Reporting for Safer Online Environments.

Joining 21 partners and coordinated by INACH (International Network against Cyber Hate), the project focuses on continuous monitoring and reporting hate speech content to the IT companies and responsible authorities and awareness raising by regular advocacy towards the social media companies, providing consolidated and interpreted data to national authorities as well as running national bi-monthly information campaigns involving different stakeholders, including IT companies, public authorities, civil society organisations and media.
