Amsterdam enjoys a worldwide reputation as a city open to everyone. Our College of Mayor and Alderpersons uphold an open and hospitable Amsterdam, where the unjust exclusion of individuals or groups is unacceptable. With its broad anti-discrimination* approach, the City Council unanimously seeks an inclusive and tolerant city where everyone can be him/herself, with respect for others and for the norms and values of our state and city. This does not just happen automatically. A diverse and welcoming city requires attention, investment and effort by the municipality, its partners, its citizens and its visitors.
Two important goals within the anti-discrimination approach are:
People communicate anonymously and freely on social media. But too easily and too often, they discriminate against others as well. Is there any way in which we could stop people who are about to make discriminatory comments online from doing so?
Develop an innovative instrument to help reduce discrimination on social media.
Discrimination is the unequal treatment of an individual or a certain group of people based on race, ethnicity, sexual orientation, gender or religion.
