This book examines many questions that have engaged our attention throughout our experience in ten years of media monitoring on hate speech for which the answers can only be grasped with the contributions of experts from various disciplines, such as freedom of expression and hate speech and the relationship between crime and speech; Turkey’s unchanging Others; types and severity of ethnic, religious and gender-based discrimination; social and historical reasons behind hate speech; the basis on which, and tools through which, a new language can be created; the observations of media watch studies under various themes; and how the whole issue looks from the perspective of journalism. 

All of the articles in this book put into a social and historical context the issue of hate speech to which the Hrant Dink Foundation has been pointing for ten years. Our wish is that these writings tackling hate speech and its various aspects from the perspectives of different disciplines will contribute to a deeper understanding of the issue, the fight against the language of hate, and a strengthening of our hopes for coexistence.
