On 10-11 March 2021 a two-day conference was held online on the subject of hate speech against Roma and Sinti in the media.

Hate speech is a global phenomenon, and Roma and Sinti people all over Europe and worldwide are among those targeted for attack by such speech. Both in the traditional media and online, especially on social media, Sinti and Roma people are victimized by discriminatory and hateful speech, disinformation, misrepresentation, and fake news, all of which can be considered displays of anti-Romani racism.

For that reason, the European Roma Institute for Arts and Culture (ERIAC), in collaboration with the Council of Europe's Roma and Travellers Team and the Central Council of German Sinti and Roma, is holding the second day of a conference on this important subject RIGHT NOW. The entire conference is taking place in English and is being broadcast live on Facebook; today's conference schedule is:

10:00 – 13:00                     ANTIGYPSYISM AND SOCIAL MEDIA/HATE-SPEECH ONLINE        
 
10:00 – 10:20                     INTRODUCTIONS 
 
10:20 – 11:30                     PANEL 5: Hate speech and antigypsyism online – Sinti and Roma experiences and counter-strategies
                                            
11:30 – 12:45                     PANEL 6: Building a safe and respectful social media environment
                                           
12:45 – 13:00.                   CLOSING OF THE CONFERENCE
