Report on Violent Discourse Against Minorities

This project attempted to identify and analyze narratives and discourse that are explicitly anti-Shia and are generally proliferated by radical, proto-radical or supremacist groups with the intent to understand and counter them. This project was carried out over three phases which studied anti-Shia speeches and literature in order to:

  1. Described and unpacked the language and content of the discourse;
  2. Attempted to uncover the psychology of the target audience and understand the linguistic and cultural toolkit deployed by the authors
  3. Proposed ways of countering such discourse.
