RightOn – Fighting online hate speech and fake news in a global crisis

In partnership with the Permanent Missions of Denmark, Norway and the Netherlands, the Geneva Academy, the Human Rights Centre of the University of Essex, the Geneva Rights Platform, and the Geneva Internet Platform, the URG is launching a new digital initiative to keep the conversation on key human rights issues going during these times of lockdowns and self-isolation.

The RightOn initiative will provide a platform for debate and exchange of ideas on topical human rights issues through regular webinars, which will take place every Wednesday at 3 PM CEST. The first of these Wednesday Web Chats took place on 8th April 2020 and focused on the issue of ‘Fighting online hate speech and fake news in a global crisis’.
