Home » Resources » Active citizenship and Volunteering » sCAN: Hate Ontology

Methodological and pedagogical study

The present Ontology covers the terminology used against minority groups mostly targeted by cyber hate, and is organised in the following categories: Racism and Xenophobia; Antisemitism; Anti-Muslim hatred; Anti-refugees hatred; Anti-Gypsyism; Homophobia; Misogyny; Hate against disabled people and Hate against socially disadvantaged group.
The risk that vulnerable individuals face being exposed to hateful contents and propaganda on the Internet, make it vital to have an expanding body of knowledge and literature to better recognize and contrast the phenomenon of cyber hate and radicalization.
