Google helps probe into online hate

    The Inter-Parliamentary Coalition for Combating Antisemitism (ICCA) has published the results of a two-year investigation into hate on the internet.

    An ICCA sub-committee called the Internet Hate Task Force presented its findings in Jerusalem this week.

    ICCA members Yuli Edelstein and Christopher Wolf conducted the investigation, which involved parliamentarians from a variety of countries, representatives of internet giants such as Google and Facebook, scholars and experts on online hate.

    The Task Force recommended that the ICCA create mechanisms to enforce comprehensive policies on hate speech and to establish a “clear, user-friendly process for allowing users to report hate speech”. As a result of its findings, the Task Force has created a more permanent Anti-Cyberhate Working Group to address the issues surrounding cyberhate.

    Chair of the ICCA John Mann MP said: “This is a terrific report which analyses the problems and gives clear recommendations to the ICCA and the industry. We will continue to work with the Anti-Cyberhate Working Group… to ensure the internet remains a wonderful tool, but where it will be increasingly difficult to spread hatred and incitement.”
