Arab Institute for Human Rights warns against surge of hate speech in public space

The Arab Institute for Human Rights warned against the serious abuses that accompanied the debates on the process of transitional justice and fate of the Truth and Dignity Commission.

In a statement, the Institute regrets the resurgence of “even physical” verbal violence as well as the surge of hate speech in the public space, calling for the Tunisian and national interests to prevail.

The Arab Institute for Human Rights insists on the preservation of transitional justice and the completion of the installation of constitutional authorities by providing them with the necessary equipment.

All components of society must work towards the establishment of the rule of law and begin, without further delay, the necessary reforms in vital areas such as education, health, justice and job, the same source reads.

It adds that the normalisation of hate speech and aggressive behaviour proves the existence of a real and profound cultural crisis. It is also the result of a blockage, unconscious or wanted, in the process of reform and democratic transition, says the organisation in its statement.
