What Drives Us Apart – Hate Speech in the Digital Age

05.04.2017, Berlin | The internet and the social media have made political and personal diffamation an everyday occurrence. So-called hate speech is malicious, direct and often not even anonymous anymore. The inciters gain adherents, and their hatred is shared. However, hatred is not a media but a societal problem. On April 21, 2017, the Ernst Schering Foundation and the Stiftung Brandenburger Tor will host a discussion evening on this topic.
