UN Secretary-General announced the launch of the UN Strategy and Plan of Action on Hate Speech.

"First, it aims to enhance our efforts to address the root causes of hate speech, in line with my prevention vision. The second overriding objective is to enable the United Nations to respond effectively to the impact of hate speech on societies,”- Antonio Guterres, United Nations Secretary General.

He also designated the special adviser on the prevention of genocide as the UN Focal Point for the implementation.

Over the past 75 years, hate speech has been a precursor to atrocity crimes, including genocide.
