The Online Hate Prevention Institute is an independent harm prevention charity established in 2012 and based in Australia.[1]

The Online Hate Prevention Institute tackles a wide variety of forms of online hate. Work on antisemitism has been undertaken for the Global Forum for Combating Antisemitism,[2] while work on Islamophobia has been used by the Organisation of Islamic Cooperation.[3] The Institute is recommended as a source of specialist information on cyber Racism by the Australian Human Rights Commission,[4] and the eSafety Commissioner.[5]

The Online Hate Prevention Institute is recognised by the Australian federal government as a Harm Prevention Charity and is listed on the Harm Prevention register by the Department of Families, Housing, Community Services and Indigenous Affairs.[6]

On July 10, 2014 Andre Oboler of the Online Hate Prevention Institute accused Facebook of refusing to enforce its own Community Standards by allowing hate speech to remain online, stating that content is removed in the country where the report originated only and is still visible to others when viewed overseas.[7]

The Online Hate Prevention Institute developed a web based application titled Fight Against Hate to track response times by social networks such as Facebook, Twitter and YouTube in responding to reports of hate speech.[8]
