This symposium will explore the phenomenon of cyber-hate. What are the key issues and manifestations? What are the appropriate responses to online hate? What are the frameworks available — legal, social, technological — and possible constraints to responding? How do we evaluate the success of various solutions?

9 – 9:30 AM Keynote Address
9:30-10:30 AM Panel Discussion

Session 1: Translating Hate in the Digital World. The first session (February 4) will define the scope of the problem of cyber-hate and its manifestations, with a particular focus on religion, race, and gender. Christopher Wolf (Chair, ADL National Committee on the Internet & Hogan Lovells LLP) will keynote this session. The panel will delve deeper into the question of understanding and recognizing online antisemitism, racism, and gender hate. How do different forms of hate manifest themselves differently online? How can we educate ourselves to recognize racism and discrimination in their different online forms?
