10 AM - 1 PM
In 2015, the European Federation of Journalists (EFJ) and the Italian association Carta di Roma launched #nohatespeech, a campaign endorsed by many European journalists as well as by Italian professional organizations (Ordine nazionale dei giornalisti, Federazione nazionale della stampa italiana) and trade unions (Usigrai). Taking a cue from this campaign, the lecturers will provide advice and information on how to manage hate speeches made by politicians and public figures. In a round table, they’ll also focus on the best practices that online newsrooms should adopt to deal with violent and intolerant comments.
