Media Coverage of Hate Speech and Discriminative Discourse in Turkey


Yasemin Ýnceođlu


Date: Thursday, 6.12.2018
Time: 17.00-19.00
Place: University of Westminster, 309 Regent Street, W1B 2HW
Room: RS UG04


Registration: https://www.eventbrite.co.uk/e/media-coverage-of-hate-speech-and-discriminative-discourse-in-turkey-tickets-50165848403


The synopsis of this seminar is to unveil the existence and the rise of hate speech in the absence of an independent, accountable, transparent media and figure out the solutions and recommendations to combat with it. Polarization between different segments of Turkish society is becoming more pronounced and intolerance more widespread. The mainstream media reproduce and pump hate, both openly and disguisedly based on concepts such as racism, ethnical prejudice, xenophobia and anti-Semitism. Media reinforce the prejudice against these marginalized groups – “the others” and at the same time make them feel unprotected and defenceless. This hate shows itself in outbursts of social lynch and discrimination and it reinforces the polarization in the society. “Hate speech” is a complicated and controversial term that is difficult to understand. The question “What is hate speech?” brings with it questions such as “Where is the boundary between freedom of expression and hate speech?”, “Is hate speech only produced against persons or minority people/groups?”, “Does every discourse that involves negative expressions and sentiments constitute hate speech?”, “How can we explain the relationship between hate speech and hate crimes?” we will address these questions by giving different examples of hate speech disseminated or produced/reproduced by the Turkish media. Throughout the seminar examples of hate speech towards political groups/ethnic origins, refugees, LGBTI groups, disabled ones etc. will be provided.
