Monitoring Hate Speech in South Sudan

Peace Tech Lab published on 25 August 2017 its second report titled "Hate Speech Monitoring and Conflict Analysis in South Sudan."

The report is part of an initiative by Peace Tech Lab to analyze online hate speech in South Sudan in order to help mitigate the threat of hateful language in fueling violence. Peace Tech Lab is seeking to build a statistical model for predicting violence in South Sudan before it occurs. The primary sources of hate speech are social media sites such as Facebook, YouTube, Twitter and specialized forums.
