The Council of Europe is launching an online training course on combating hate speech in the audio-visual media for journalists from the Republic of Moldova. The training is organised over five sessions – on 17, 19, 21, 24 and 26 May.

During the training course, the participants will get familiar with international standards, provisions of national legislation, as well as the jurisprudence of the European Court of Human Rights on the freedom of expression, non-discrimination and hate speech. They will learn about the relation between freedom of expression and non-discrimination and hate speech in journalistic activity, and develop their practical abilities in applying the instruments for preventing intolerance in the audio-visual media.

Participation in this training course is free, and the sessions are held in Romanian. The deadline for registration is 5 May.

The training course is organised in the framework of the project Promoting European standards in the audio-visual regulation of the Republic of Moldova and of the regional project ‘Strengthening access to justice for victims of discrimination, hate crime and hate speech in the Eastern Partnership', funded by the European Union and implemented by the Council of Europe under its EU-funded Partnership for Good Governance (2019-2021).
