Raise awareness of the Problem

DOCUMENT THE PROBLEM

Aims to improve public information about far-right extremism and perpetrators. This includes gathering and presenting the facts on far-right extremism and trends, and monitoring violence and hate speech.

CHALLENGE MISINFORMATION

Aims to disrupt stereotypes about what far-right extremists look like today. The popular conception of a far-right extremist is an outdated one, generally based on visions of a male skinhead, anti-social, and in bomber jackets and boots, often perpetuated by mainstream media. Some non-government organisations (NGOs), are actively working with police and the media to disrupt their conceptions of far-right extremists.

CHANGING PUBLIC OPINION ON DIVERSITY

Aims to change stereotypes about particular minority groups targeted by the far right. In some countries, it remains difficult to mobilise the general public on tolerance to diversity. This also rings true in countries that easily mobilise against racism, but have high levels of intolerance towards particular groups. These initiatives aim to mainstream positive stories about these groups, and change public perceptions by promoting positive role models from these backgrounds.
