Article: “Racism on the Internet”, written by Yaman Akdeniz, published by Council of Europe

Yaman Akdeniz’s book Racism on the Internet, published by Council of Europe, offers a lucid and perspicuous insight in the growing problem. Racism was a pressing social problem long before the emergence of the digital age. The advancement of digital communication technologies such as the Internet has, however, added a new dimension to this problem by providing individuals and organisations with modern and powerful means to propagate racism and xenophobia. The use of the Internet as an instrument for the widespread dissemination of racist content is assessed in detail by the author. The problem of racist content on the Internet has naturally prompted vigorous responses from a variety of agents, including governments, supranational and international organisations and from the private sector. This book also provides a detailed critical overview of these regulatory and non-regulatory initiatives.
