Hate speech is on the rise across Europe, jeopardising social cohesion and putting human rights under threat. The Western Balkans region is not immune to hate speech that particularly targets individuals from vulnerable groups, who have already been affected by stigma and discrimination during the COVID-19 pandemic. To counter this phenomenon in the region, the European Union and the Council of Europe have launched a campaign for the Western Balkans – “Block the hatred. Share the love.”
The campaign implemented under the action on “Promotion of diversity and equality in the Western Balkans” will take place entirely online, through dedicated Facebook, Instagram and Twitter pages: “Block the hatred. Share the love.”, and will be ongoing in the years to come.
