Slovenia, Croatia and Serbia, countries of former Yugoslavia located on the Balkan migration route, face increasing hate speech online that exploit tensions and negative attitudes to minority groups. 

Spread of hatred and radicalization of youth online is a burning issue, and teachers lack knowledge how to address it in classrooms. Several good practices of countering hate speech online exist in the region and EU with few sharing opportunities. 

From the beginning of 2020, the Centre for Peace Studies, together with the Peace Institute and University of Ljubljana, Faculty of Social Sciences from Slovenia and Journalist School from the city of Novi Sad, Serbia is implementing project “SEE Beyond Hate: Learning and Acting to Counter Hate Speech Online in South East Europe”.  

The BEHAVE project provides opportunities and tools for mutual learning on countering hate speech online and for responding to hate narratives in Slovenia, Croatia and Serbia, countries on the Balkan migration route. 

Main objectives of the project are: 

- To increase mutual learning and exchange on good practices countering hate speech online for state and non-state actors in Slovenia, Croatia and Serbia. 

- To analyse hate speech online and respond to dominant hate narratives in new media forms addressing with counter-narratives particularly young internet users. 

- To support and raise competencies of secondary school teachers and staff for teaching and practical work with students in addressing hate speech online.

In all three countries, public campaign on raising awareness on the internet and social media users will be conducted.

Project is financed by the Rights, Equality and Citizenship (REC) Program of the European Union.
