On this week’s episode of Yeah Nah Pasaran! on 3CR we talk to Dr Andre Oboler [Twitter]. Andre is an academic and CEO of the Online Hate Prevention Institute (OHPI) who has published widely on the subject of hate speech and other, related matters.
OHPI was established in 2012 as Australia’s national charity tackling online hate. We work to make online hate as unacceptable as real world hate, because the internet should not be a shield for bullies and racists. OHPI runs Fight Against Hate, the online reporting tool that brings transparency to the way social media companies deal with the reports users make to them. This monitoring facility provides statistical analysis of online hate incidents which governments, agencies, and law enforcement badly need.
