Invitation: sCAN Advanced Monitoring Training in Vienna


We would like to cordially invite you to participate in the sCAN Advanced Monitoring Training, which will be held by ZARA training experts in the framework of the EU project sCAN – Specialised Cyber Activists Network – an initiative by 10 European civil society organisations combatting online hate speech and discrimination.

By participating in this interactive and informative training, you will have the possibility to become an expert in the field of monitoring hate speech and counteraction, documenting the phenomenon, tackling underreporting, comparing results as well as producing effective counter-narratives. The training will include interactive sessions on how to recognise hate speech, the importance of monitoring and the art of documentation. An expert trainer from the International Network Against Cyber Hate (INACH) will join the training for a 1-hour morning session in order to give an understanding of how to use the INACH databank for documenting cyber hate.

If you want to become a monitoring expert and contribute to more thorough research on the cyber hate phenomenon as well as promote more visibility and counteraction, register for the free Advanced Monitoring Trainings via the AM Training Registration Form, which will be open for registration from August 5th 2019 onwards.

Please note that we are following a strict first-come-first-served-principle – so register as quickly as possible. If the training date in Vienna is not feasible for you, please note that another training will be held on March 5th and 6th 2020 in Brussels.
