There are several expressions that are necessary to understand when we deal with hate speech. The Hate Speech Watch is compiling a collection of definitions that are linked to different aspects of hate speech. One notion may have more definitions which are important for the full understanding of what we actually discuss and about what we take actions.

If you have recommendations or comments on any of the definitions please do not hesitate to contact us
