    INACH ANNUAL CONFERENCE 2013 IN UPPSALA, SWEDEN INACH Annual Conference 2013 in Uppsala (SWEDEN) on October 17th!

    At this year's conference we will focus on the relation between civil society and politics/policy making and address three different spheres of accountability. Trough the theme "CIVIL ACTIVISM AND POLITICAL RESPONSIBILITY" we call upon the public internet users, the civil society and the official politicians and ask them about their role, ability and responsibility in creating a safe internet environment. What can be done by ordinary citizens? What should our elected politicians do? What is already done by the civil society to combat hate or to improve the environment on the Internet? Where do our strategies reinforce each other and where do our different intentions collide? During the conference we will also have the opportunity to exchange ideas, learn from each other as well as discuss our various approaches and strategies on countering cyber hate. The conference will be held in the centre of beautiful Uppsala, Sweden, in the old university building known as Norrlands Nation, Västra Ågatan 14.

During the workshop, hosted by the INACH Secretariat at Magenta Foundation in Amsterdam, trainers and lecturers from the USA, Czech Republic, Israel, the Netherlands took 24 participants from all over Europe through a program that explained (among other things) the intricacies of online hate speech, gave tools for countering and taught hands-on countering by online discussion, debunking of discriminatory Internet myths, by posting positive information and by creating positive campaigns. Later in the year a follow-up training will be organized.
