The Open Code for Hate-Free Communication (Op:Code) project aims to counter online hate speech by providing:
- Support for users and communicators: analysis, recommendations, reports and free software solutions for tackling hate;
- Data for the European Commission: web monitoring data for future policy;
- Recommendations on how to address hate for European policy-makers and IT companies;
- Advocacy and network consolidation for International Network Against Cyber Hate.
The project was created by a consortium of human rights organisations fighting online-hate speech in 5 countries: Estonia, Poland, Romania, Slovakia and Spain. Project partners: ActiveWatch (Romania, leading partner), DigiQ (Slovakia), Estonian Human Rights Centre (Estonia), NEVER AGAIN Association (Poland) and Movimiento Contra la Intolerancia (Spain). Contact information of partners can be found here.
The project is co-funded by the European Union’s Rights, Equality and Citizenship Programme (2014–2020), and the National Foundation of Civil Society of Estonia.
