OHPI stands against racism. You can see a detailed list of all our publications on online racism here. However, we take a particular interest in campaigning against online hate against Indigenous Australians.

Below is a list of our publications documenting, reporting and highlighting instances of online hate speech against Indigenous Australians.



OHPI produces detailed reports documenting and analysing online hate. The reports are produced over a number of months addressing a theme in a systematic and in-depth manner. These reports are published by OHPI and made freely available to the public.
