(p.263) 16 Regulating Hate Crime in the Digital Age
The Globalization of Hate

Chara Bakalis

Oxford University Press

This chapter explores the particular challenges that globalization poses to the combating of online hatred. It discusses the ways in which the regulation of online hate crime and hate speech differs from the regulation of ‘offline’ hate, and reflects on the specific problems that globalization brings to this area. It evaluates current international responses to online hatred, and puts forward suggestions for improvement. It will argue that the issues surrounding freedom of speech, and the harm caused by cyberhate, need to be reconsidered in light of the way in which online hatred is committed. It suggests that a united global response is the most effective way to make progress, but also acknowledges that differing cultural and legal norms make this a slow and difficult process.

Keywords:   cyberhate, online hate speech, online hate crime, digital hate speech, digital hate crime, cyber harassment, online abuse
