PI: Claudia Wilhelm

Duration: Februar 2020 – Jänner 2022

Fördergeber / Programm: European Union's Rights Equality and Citizenship Programme (2014-2020)

Mitarbeit: Julia Hoffstedde, B.A. (Universität Erfurt)


The general objective of GENHA is to identify and analyze how hate speech against the 'ideology of gender' has been appropriated by extreme right political parties in Europe using social networks and the Internet. It also aims to propose which type of legal and public policies the Member States and the European Union can implement to protect the human rights at stake.
