Online hate speech is a worrying and complex phenomenon, which has deep cultural and social roots and brings new questions and challenges to the issue of freedom of expression on the web. Only a collective commitment at cultural and educational level can be the basis to counter online hate speech, promoting  at the same time freedom and participation which are major components of the Internet.

Responsibilities and roles of providers and media, legal tools and educational initiatives in schools will be the main issues addressed by the experts, starting from the results of the European two-year project BRICkS, which carried out studies on journalism and migration and media education workshops in schools in Italy, Germany, Czech Republic and Belgium.

The panel will be introduced by Sara Cerretelli- Cospe and moderated by Marco Pratellesi – Director AGI


Giovanni Ziccardi – Professor of Legal Informatics at the University of Milan

Sven Gantzkow – Social media manager WDR.de

Klara Kalibova  – Director of IUSTITIA
