Chronicles, European Projects, Stop Hate

Sharing Experiences – German Team

The smooth organisation of the seminars and cozy south european city left us with vivid impressions on the way back home. Discussions about hate speech in Malaga left more questions than answers (what actually seems to be a great result!). And those we were ready to throw on a joint discussion back to Berlin.
What should one understand under the term „hate speech“? Where are the limits of „hate speech“? Must the comments in social networks be somehow controlled? Should the narrative of politicians be in a way limited?
The term „hate speech“ itself is quite ambiguous, what led out workshop also to arguments. However, one can see and agree on the misuse of the most accessible tool: the language. It has actually no manual. Should there be written one?
