CIC Calgary: Mutual Learning Between Democracies

October 24, 2023 @ 8:30 am - 5:00 pm MDT

How should democracies support one another? A group of Canadian and German researchers and activists are joining forces to compare how studying online hate campaigns in another country can help us identify and counter those campaigns in our own. This is the new approach of Democratic Solidarity at work.

On October 24, the first results of comparative research into online hate campaigns will be shared in a conference entitled “Mutual Learning Between Democracies: Online Campaigns Against Marginalized Populations.”  The conference will review Germany’s experience with anti-migrant campaigns and identify new research to compare anti-LGBT campaigns in both countries

. Participants will explore how both civil society and governments in both countries can exchange insights on a more systematic basis, engaging both civil society and governments in a new practice of democratic solidarity.
