Share The Many Faces Of Online Hate Speech in Kenya

Event Details

The Umati project, which has been running since September 2012 to date, is an online monitoring project that seeks to identify and understand the use of hate and dangerous speech in the Kenyan online space.

The forum, titled ‘The Many Faces Of Online Hate Speech in Kenya,’ will bring together government representatives, politicians, civil society, media, bloggers/online personalities and the public in one space, to discuss the dynamics of hate speech in Kenya, and particularly that which has been observed online in the past year.

The forum’s objective is to facilitate conversation and interaction on use of hate speech by influential and ordinary Kenyans alike, what has been observed to trigger hate speech online, its impact on the Kenyan society, challenges of prosecuting hate speech, and how we can address the root causes of hate speech, towards a more cohesive society.

Be part of this exciting and interactive discussion on  hate speech in Kenya, on the 28th January 2014 from 5:30 pm - 8:00 pm at the *iHub (4th floor, Bishop Magua Centre, Ngong’ Road).

See you there!
