EJN 5-point test for hate speech

This infographic has been created by the Ethical Journalists Network (EJN) and although primarily aimed at journalists can also be used by teachers as part of their media literacy activities. The idea behind the infographic is to help navigate through the current media landscape minefield and take into consideration the wider context in which people express themselves. What is important is to focus not just on what is said, but what is intended. It’s not just a matter of law or socially acceptable behaviour; it’s a question of whether speech aims to do others harm, particularly at moments when there is the threat of immediate violence.
