Link to slides: Illegal content online: Bringing rights-based solutions to EU table

The workshop will analyse one real case example of illegal content online: a Facebook group was operating in France under the name “Femmes indignes 6.0 résurrection” since 2016. In January 2017, it had over 56 000 members. The group was accessible only to men (cis-gendered). The purpose and use of the group was to publish stolen photos from women in intimate contexts and humiliate them, or women in general. In addition to photos, injurious comments, insults and incitements to violence and hatred towards women were shared.

Different scenarios and viewpoints will be analysed by workshop participants split into groups to answer a set of questions and stress-test existing legislative proposals and laws.
