The IATE term of the week is “hate speech”

Every week TermCoord selects a new term from the European Terminology Databank “IATE”, which is related to relevant political and international issues occurring during the week.

This week we have selected the term “hate speech” with reference to the Anti-Islam film protests of this week.


The Revised Radicalisation and Recruitment Action Plan of the Council of the European Union, in its Paragraph 44 notes that “the Union should promote full implementation of UNSCR 1624 (2005) and use in this context its external relations policy to encourage third states not to allow the transmission through satellite channels or other media, of messages that contain hate speech or incite terrorist violence“.
