Rising living costs and racism threaten fundamental rights protection in Europe: FRA’s Fundamental Rights Report 2024

Online hate: we need to improve content moderation to effectively tackle hate speech

Abusive comments, harassment and incitement to violence easily slip through online platforms’ content moderation tools, finds a new report from the EU Agency for Fundamental Rights (FRA).

FRA calls for more transparency and guidance to ensure a safer online space for all.
