Marie Curie funding for UL’s Hate and Hostility Research Group


HHRG directors Dr. Jennifer Schweppe (Law) and Dr. Amanda Haynes (Sociology) are part of the NETHATE consortium which has secured funding under the Horizon 2020 Marie Skłodowska-Curie Actions. The purpose of the Innovative Training Network funding stream is to provide early stage researchers with training in fields that will be of social or economic benefit.

NETHATE (Network of Excellence of Training on HATE) brings together an interdisciplinary team of world-leading European researchers to research the nature of hate. The consortium of 10 universities and 1 NGO will train 15 doctoral researchers in partnership with 14 organisations across the public, private and third sectors. The network will examine such wide-ranging issues as dissemination online and offline, victim and bystander impacts, and effective responses.
