Näthat/Cyber hate – en definition

I den nya boken Policing Cyber Hate, Cyber Threats and Cyber Terrorism så finns ett kapitel som handlar om Psykologiska aspekter på näthat/cyber Hate och Cyber Terrorism. Där så  presenterar Jane Prince en användbar definition av näthat/Cyber Hate. Hennes definition ser ut som följer:

Cyber hate is understood as being the use of information and communication technologies (ICTs) to promote hate and to target the largely youthful and impressionable audiences that increasingly rely on these technologies. Hategroups achieve their goals in four main ways: promoting ideology, promoting hatred of other racial or religious groups, exerting control over others and targeting opponents” (Prince.2012:39).
