“From hate speech to hate communication: How racism is produced and reflected through communicative practices”

Free 2-day workshop as part of an EU-funded programme called RADAR – Regulating AntiDiscrimination and AntiRacism (Fundamental Rights and Citizenship Programme JUST/2013/FRAC/AG/6271).

The workshop is for:

  • professionals and trainees in the legal sector, the police, social workers, charity workers, people working in local and national authorities, policy makers, volunteers interested in ethnic equality and diversity;
  • trainers interested in participating in the trial / pilot implementation of the proposed training approach and have open access and reusability of the available material;
  • people who have experienced racism or xenophobia and are interested in sharing their experiences and leading discussions.

Workshop aims:

To develop a better understanding of hate-motivated and hate-producing communication practices, which would enable professionals to make better judgements, react effectively to racist and xenophobic behaviours and attitudes and ultimately help to prevent racism, xenophobia, discrimination and exclusion.

Workshop content:
  • language use in legal texts (laws and judgments) and its social implication;
  • communication practices reflecting and (re)producing racism, xenophobia, discrimination, exclusion.

The RADAR project:

RADAR brings together nine partners from six countries with the aim to raise awareness and develop the necessary tools to identify and tackle hate-motivated and hate-producing communication which have a racialised dimension. This will be achieved through training activities and events. The project will also provide a handbook as well as comparative studies and analyses. For more information on the project’s objectives, deliverables and individual work packages, please visit the project website.

The 2-day workshop is free and includes lunch, coffee, a drinks reception and a Certificate of Attendance. Registration is required. Places are limited so please register here  by 10th June.
