Abstract

The alarming growth of hate speech on social media platforms has caused serious consequences for individuals, online communities, and society. While the majority of related work focuses on explicit hate speech, research on implicit hate speech (IHS) is still in its infancy. IHS is a more subtle form of hate that poses considerable challenges for victims, platforms, regulators, and society. To address this gap, we propose a scoping review of IHS to investigate its current state of research, with an emphasis on summarizing its phenotypes, detection challenges, and state-of-the-art detection methods. Our work aims to build a foundation for future studies and pave the way for in-depth research on the characteristics of IHS, as well as potential agendas for countering it.

NAVIGATING IMPLICIT HATE SPEECH – A SCOPING REVIEW

The alarming growth of hate speech on social media platforms has caused serious consequences for individuals, online communities, and society. While the majority of related work focuses on explicit hate speech, research on implicit hate speech (IHS) is still in its infancy. IHS is a more subtle form of hate that poses considerable challenges for victims, platforms, regulators, and society. To address this gap, we propose a scoping review of IHS to investigate its current state of research, with an emphasis on summarizing its phenotypes, detection challenges, and state-of-the-art detection methods. Our work aims to build a foundation for future studies and pave the way for in-depth research on the characteristics of IHS, as well as potential agendas for countering it.
