Support of the Delegation of the European Union in BiH for the Campaign “Stop! Hate Speech!”

 

The European Union in Bosnia and Herzegovina welcomes the campaign “Stop! Hate Speech!” which is organized by the Press Council in Bosnia and Herzegovina. The goal of the campaign, which has just begun in the context of the election campaign, is to address the problem of hate speech, and discriminatory and inciting rhetoric in internet portal visitor comments.  

 

“Hate speech is unacceptable in a democratic society. This is a problem that needs to be addressed throughout Europe, and thus in Bosnia and Herzegovina. Research indicates that hate speech on internet portals has been on the rise in recent years, and joint and decisive efforts are necessary in the fight against this occurrence”, said Andy Mcguffie, Spokesperson of the Delegation of the European union in BiH and Special Representatives of the EU in BiH.
