An Overview of Online Hate Speech in Pakistan

3 September 2022 • 3:00 – 5:00 pm PKT

In July 2022, the by-elections in Punjab, Pakistan displayed a high level of disinformation being used in political electioneering. During this one-hour sofa talk, we will look at the roots of the religious hate speech in major cities across the province of Punjab that we discovered through social media monitoring and analysis of Twitter conversations.

We will also analyze trends in terms of Pakistan’s major cities and regions using a geospatial lens, to better understand hate speech. We will untangle how, during the Punjab by-election period, disinformation could bolster online hatred during the 2023 general elections.

The event will also be the occasion to launch two new learning briefs:
