Alliance launches No Hate Certificate to acknowledge and make visible the role of civil society in combating intolerance
Co-operating with civil society has been part of the way of functioning of the No Hate Parliamentary Alliance from the start. Representatives of associations and non-governmental organisations have been crucial interlocutors and have helped members to understand the reality of hatred, racism and intolerance in Europe today.
The No Hate Parliamentary Alliance has now established a way to acknowledge the role of these actors in supporting its cause, and to promote and make visible the principles enshrined in the Alliance’s Charter. Schools, sports clubs, youth and human rights non-governmental organisations, as well as online blogs, pages and new outlets, may be granted a No Hate Certificate which would confirm their contribution to fighting hatred and intolerance in Europe in whatever form it manifests itself. Candidates will be nominated by Alliance members in close co-operation with the No Hate Speech Movement campaign of the Council of Europe’s Youth Sector, and by national committees of the campaign itself.
“Certified” entities will be featured in the website and social media of the Alliance and the Committee on Equality and Non-Discrimination of the Parliamentary Assembly. They will be encouraged to work closely with the Alliance – it is hoped that the Certificate will only be the first step in this direction.
