In the first of these phases we will interview experts in discrimination and hate speech to design a previous diagnosis of the current situation.
That will be followed by another phase in which we will create three online communities to analyze the opinions, perceptions and expectations that young people have in relation to this issue. Each group shall consist of 15 people from different parts of Spain and age groups will be 18-20 year-olds, 22-24 year-olds and 26-29 year-olds.
The third phase contemplates two set of interviews with youngsters who have specific profiles. One will include people who are close to action, education, prevention and mediation in issues related to online hate speech, with experience in the creation of counternarratives in this area; and another one with people who represent particular groups who often suffer hate speech, or who have close access to hate speech.
The fourth stage will include a monitorization and an active listening of social media to identify situations that lead to the spreading of hate messages. Opinions that are linked to these hate messages will also be analyzed and contextualized to see the sort of environments they emerge from. For that matter, we will choose six social media users whose profiles are related to hate speech and cyberbullying.
The results of the investigation will be available in this website in March 2021.
