Training on Diversity and Hate Speech in Lithuania PDF Print

Dates: 16 - 22 May 2013

Country: Lithuania, Druskininkai

lithuania training 1Twenty four journalism students and young journalists participated in the training on diversity and hate speech organized by National Institute for Social Integration from Lithuania. Some of the participants were chosen by the Media Diversity Institute (MDI) who is the partner in this project.

One of the goals of the workshop held in Lithuania was to define terms ‘hate speech’ and ‘freedom of expression’ and to make a distinction between them.

The main objectives were to recognise hate speech and stereotypes, especially the stereotyping of the vulnerable groups, and to learn how to react against them. The way to do that, as Neringa Jurciukonyte from the National Institute for Social Integration explained, is through the direct contact with the people from the vulnerable groups. “Put yourselves in their shoes and talk to people directly”, said Jurciukonyte.
