Inclusive Online Environments
Features of the internet such as openness and hyperconnectivity enable groups of like-minded individuals to quickly unite and exchange information. This can have an empowering effect. However, these same characteristics can also facilitate harmful behavior, such as online hate, bullying, revenge porn, and the spread of misinformation. Groups marginalised in society are at additional risk. In this project, we explore how online environments can empower rather than harm.
