WSRC Convener Puja Kapai spoke at a United Nations Conference on Hate Speech, Social Media, and Minority Rights.
Puja spoke on the international legal and institutional frameworks to combat hate speech online, citing various jurisdictions in Europe and elsewhere as successful examples of measures that effectively combat hate speech. She discussed how a similar approach should be brought to Asia to combat hate speech against its minority groups. She outlined the value of data in actualizing this approach, calling for government actors to map the link between online hate speech and its real-life manifestation into coordinated hate campaigns in order to effectively tackle the problem.
