Monitoring Online Dangerous Speech in Kenya: Insights from the Umati Project

In October 2014, the European Interagency Security Forum (EISF) launched a knowledge hub on communications technology and security risk management. The first publication of this project brought together 17 authors who analysed in 11 articles how communications technology is changing the operational environment, the ways in which communications technology is creating new opportunities for humanitarian agencies to respond to emergencies, and the impact that new programmes have on how we manage security.

This article examines insights from the Umati project in Kenya for understanding how technology can be used to monitor dangerous speech on different online platforms which has the potential to catalyse collective violence.
