Webinar: “Beyond Hate: Reconnections and Online Spaces for Dialogue”
French / Open to all / Free / Registration required
Description: While social networks, and more broadly the Internet, have emerged as important vectors of hate speech and acts of violence, the Centre for the Prevention of Radicalization Leading to Violence will offer, as part of Peace Days, a webinar on the potential of social networks to mobilize citizens against extremism and act of hate.
Although social networks can be a vehicle of hate speech and a place of radicalization, they have also shown through social movements, citizen initiatives, support groups and the like that they can be a bulwark against hatred and a means overcoming differences of opinion. The webinar will offer an analysis of this potential, as well as presenting the different resources that can be used in the fight against hatred and in the strengthening of peace and social harmony.
