“Hate speech is an attack on human dignity and one of the most toxic forms of misinformation. We must address it because we know that hate speech leads to hate crimes. It is not an exaggeration to say that countering hate speech is a key component of atrocity prevention.”

7. SOUNDBITE (English) Alice Wairimu Nderitu, Special Adviser on the Prevention of Genocide, United Nations:
“Hate speech is used to stoke fear and division, often for political gain, and at immense cost to communities and societies. It incites violence, exacerbates tensions, and impedes efforts to foster mediation and dialogue. It is one of the warning signs of genocide and other atrocity crimes.”
