The EU-funded Partnership for Good Governance programme is organising a training course for the staff of the Audiovisual Council of the Republic of Moldova on monitoring and sanctioning hate speech. This capacity-building activity was recommended by the European Commission against Racism and Intolerance (ECRI) in its monitoring report on Moldova.

The training will include four online sessions during April. They will aim to familiarise participants with the key human rights concepts (including equality and non-discrimination), and with the relevant case law on hate speech (including those of the European Court of Human Rights). The training will also develop participants’ competences to monitor, analyse and frame hate speech cases.

This activity is part of the regional project Strengthening access to justice for victims of discrimination, hate speech and hate crimes in the Eastern Partnership’,funded by the European Union and the Council of Europe and implemented by the Council of Europe under the Partnership for Good Governance (2019-2021).
