|Measuring trends in online hate speech (report)||2.42 MB|
Online hate speech has been a topic of public concern and research interest for some time. This report presents findings from Netsafe’s 2019 research regarding the personal experiences of adult New Zealanders in relation to online hate speech. Online hate speech affects groups unequally and some people are experiencing serious harm as a result. People can disagree or have an alternate viewpoint online, but when actions become harmful there should be support, resolution and even prosecution options available.
