Report Launch: Hate Speech and Radicalisation in the Network

The Hate Speech and Radicalisation in the Network report was launched at Facebook on Potsdamer Platz in Berlin, with an animated debate between Gerd Billen (StS Federal Ministry of Justice and Consumer Protection), Marie-Teresa Weber (Public Policy Manager, Facebook) and Matthias Quent (Director, Institute for Democracy and Civil Society). Julia Ebner (Research Fellow, Institute for Strategic Dialogue) moderated the conversation which touched on hate speech, extremism, echo chambers and “fake news” on the internet, especially with regard to the current discussions surrounding the German Network Enforcement Act (NetzDG).
