Combating hate speech and hate crime through strengthened cooperation.

The conference 'Together against Hate Speech and Hate Crime' brings together various stakeholders to discuss how to enhance partnerships between governments, civil society and international organizations. The conference will likewise showcase both current and past partnership experiences and best practices, and serve as a platform for knowledge exchange on key aspects that could be transferable to other initiatives.
