“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.
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.
- 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.
