This ARTICLE 19 briefing explores how States and other stakeholders should respond to rising levels of intolerance and hate in societies in all parts of the world, by taking action on UN standards to promote inclusion, diversity and pluralism.
The Third Edition takes a closer look at the gender dimensions of hate, in particular its disproportionate and differential impacts on women and LGBTQ people. It further examines connections to UN standards on racist hate speech, and hatred against migrants, which often intersect with other forms of discrimination, including on the basis of religion or belief. Moreover, it contends with actions from States and business enterprises, in particular social media companies, to tackle hate online.
