In the context of the "Coalition of Positive Messengers to Counter Online Hate Speech" project all of the organizations and institutions involved developed reports in which good practices were included. The goal is to give you useful ideas on how you, your community or organization can create initiatives to counter online hate speech and spread messages of positivity and tolerance.

Online hate speech has been a problem for Internet platforms, creators and users for some time. Regulations have been ineffective and restrictions have been slow. 

In 1997 the Council of Europe defines hate speech as “all forms of expressions that spread, incite, promote or justify racial hatred, xenophobia, anti-Semitism or other forms of hatred based on intolerance”.
