Experiences with hate speech
The aim of this project is:
- to develop a survey-based approach to study the prevalence of hate speech in different groups of the population
- to measure the prevalence of experiences with hate speech among lesbians, gays, bisexuals and transsexuals (LGBT people) and in the general population
We will develop a questionnaire that, using a broad approach, measures experiences with receiving and observing hate speech on different arenas. The questionnaire will be developed so that the study can be repeated over time and across countries.
Furthermore, we will employ the questionnaire to carry out several surveys. First, we will measure the prevalence of experiences with hate speech among LGBT people and in the general population. Second, in order to secure that the questionnaire and methodological approach is valid across different groups in the population, we will conduct the survey among members of selected organizations and congregations that organize relevant minority groups.
