The Information Guide on Counterspeech Labs aims to explain the methodology and structure of the OCCI Counterspeech Labs. The guide contains condensed information and content from the YouthCAN Innovation Lab Report (2016), a document produced and published by the Institute for Strategic Dialogue.
Because of our strong belief in the power of counterspeech and the growing interest in a more rigorous and evidence led approach to understand it better, Facebook commissioned Demos, a UK based think-tank, to undertake a series of research reports, examining the extent to which different types of counter-speech are produced and shared on Facebook. This short interim report sets out the summary findings of Phase I, which looked at how speech which challenges right-wing populist pages across Europe, is produced and shared. Further reports in this series examine speech and content that challenges extreme Islamist ideology, in the UK and beyond.
In October 2015, Demos published a report, supported by Facebook, which examined the activity of counter-speech and populist right-wing groups on Facebook and made recommendations for how counter-speech groups could more effectively diffuse their messages. This report sets out the summary findings of phase II of this project, examining how speech which challenges extreme Islamist narratives is produced and shared in different parts of the world. This comparative study looks includes data from France, the UK, Morocco, Tunisia, Indonesia and India.
