- About OHPI
- Online Hate
OHPI was created in 2012 as a dedicated institute for addressing online hate. It builds on six years of work in combating Online Hate by CEO Dr Andre Oboler.
OHPI continues to serve as a line of defense by tracking all forms of online hate, monitoring online environments to include social media platforms. This covers both “hate speech” directed against groups or individuals, as well as cyberbullying which can involve hateful content directed against an individual. Using classic risk analysis approaches, the institute tracks the content, develops in-depth reports, and does everything in its power to have it removed.
“The aim is to try and clean up social media. If we do that, we can start changing social values so that hate is again seen as not acceptable in society.”
- Dr. Oboler
OHPI aims to examine the full breadth of internet communication and to demonstrate where hate manifests and how those in control of different types of platforms can mitigate the problem. We aim to promote debate about the type of society we, the internet-using public, wish to see. We also seek to raise awareness about the dangers that hate, whatever form it takes, can have on individuals and their physical and emotional health.
Ultimately, OHPI’s vision is to change online culture so hate in all its forms becomes as socially unacceptable online as it is “in real life”.

Facebook is failing to prevent their platform from being used to spread hate. By signing OHPI’s petition demanding Facebook to stop ignoring reports of racism, you are helping push social platforms to take responsibility for the hate content they are allowing to be published.
