International cooperation against cyber hate
In the International Network Against Cyber Hate (INACH) jugendschutz.net cooperates with partner organizations from more than 20 countries to develop best practice models when it comes to action taken and prevention. The network co-founded by jugendschutz.net in 2002, unites organizations from Europe, Israel, Russia, South America and the USA in the fight against online hate speech. The network aims at the international condemnation of extremism, hate and discrimination on the internet.
INACH actively participates in the EU monitoring concerning the code of conduct for combating unlawful hate speech on the internet. In this monitoring, INACH regularly checks how reliably platform operators respond to unlawful hate speech in their networks.
Bringing the Online in Line with Human rights
INACH has the vision to use transnational collaboration to uphold human rights on the internet.
This is how the internet shall become a more human place. From a multinational and multicultural perspective, INACH approaches all forms of online discrimination.
Most of the INACH members systematically monitor internet content and operate a complaints office for reports form internet users. The aim is to achieve prompt removal of unlawful hate speech. Other members focus more on education and awareness raising and offer training and online courses on hate speech and counter speech in order to sensitize the internet community to this problem and promote their courage to stand up for their beliefs.
Annual conferences on changing topics and open to the public provide the opportunity to talk to INACH partners and international experts and form new partnerships.
The partners also contribute to international discussions at EU or OSCE level to promote the global condemnation of hate and discrimination on the internet. This is how INACH could establish itself as a central point of contact for ‘cyber hate’ and an important partner of the European Commission.
