The Network of Excellence of Training on HATE (NETHATE) consortium, which was awarded a Marie Skłodowska-Curie Innovative Training Networks grant in 2020, brings together an interdisciplinary team of leading scholars of hatred from a dozen European universities and cooperates with governmental agencies, as well as non-academic private partners, including Google and a number of NGOs and civil society partners. The consortium investigates the impact of hatred in our societies by furthering our understanding about the nature of hatred and the dynamics of its spread in both offline and online fora. It will also examine mitigation strategies to prevent hatred and its escalation, and the potential conflicts that may arise from various moral codes and the law. The consortium aims at furthering our understanding of hatred through combing psychology and neuroscience, technology and social media, and culture, law and religion. Prof. Jeroen Temperman (ESL) is appointed as the director of the consortium’s third core pillar of the project: hatred & culture, law and religion.
The project runs from 1st of March 2021 until 31 August 2024.
