An exciting joint project has been formed between the University of Utrecht (HU), the Slovak-based NGO, PDCS, the artificial intelligence start-up, Textgain, and the Dare to be Grey group working to combat polarisation. Together, as EOOH - the European Observatory of Online Hate they are conducting a two-year investigation and reporting on the fundamental nature of the dynamics of online hate, how hate manifests itself, the connections between the perpetrators and their influence as well as disinformation strategies.
