The Centerfor Countering Digital Hate is a not-for-profit NGO that seeks to disrupt the architecture of online hate and misinformation.
Digital technology has changed forever the way we communicate, build relationships, share knowledge, set social standards, and negotiate and assert our society’s values.
Digital spaces have been colonised and their unique dynamics exploited by fringe movements that instrumentalise hate and misinformation. These movements are opportunistic, agile and confident in exerting influenceand persuading people.Over time these actors, advocating diverse causes – from anti-feminism to ethnic nationalism to denial of scientific consensus – have formed a Digital Counter Enlightenment.
Their trolling, disinformation and skilled advocacy of their causes has resocialised the offline world for the worse.The Center’s work combines both analysis and active disruption of these networks. CCDH’s solutions seek to increase the economic, political and social costs of all parts of the infrastructure -the actors, systems and culture -that support, and often profit from hate and misinformation.
