Speakers from across the United Nations, academia and civil society tackle this critical child rights issue.

Hate speech is a critical child rights issue. Discrimination and exclusion that manifest in hate speech are issues of significant relevance to children’s rights across development, fragile and humanitarian contexts, and both online as well as off-line.
