RNF has received a grant from Google’s Freedom of Expression team to undertake original reporting related to religious intolerance on the Internet and approaches to countering hateful sentiments online. This will result in:
- At least 12 news and feature stories investigating the global effects of religious intolerance and hate speech online.
- One On Air and recorded Google Hangout event exploring how media professionals across Europe, the U.S. and beyond moderate online conversations that include religious hate speech without unduly restricting freedom of expression.
- One ReligionLink guide advising editors how to best counter hateful sentiments online without stifling freedom of expression.
