Background information ​

The eMORE project aims to contribute to developing, testing and transferring a knowledge model on online hate speech and offline hate crime, based on a circular and advanced joint monitoring-reporting system, to gain a sound understanding of the phenomena/trends over the Internet and offline, to allow comparative analysis at national/EU level, and to support the harmonised combating against hate-motivated offences at EU/national level.

The Project is developing a knowledge platform available to target groups, which will allow to in-depth analyse hate phenomena online/offline. The platform will process data/information collected through a crawler to monitor the Internet and the APP to report crime. This APP will be tested in 9 participating countries.

The knowledge base will include the most important categories of hate motivated offences (hate against gender, race, religion, sexual orientation and disability).
