There is no accepted international definition of hate speech and this challenges the task of judge exactly what constitutes hate-speech. 

This infographic by the Ethical Journalism Network (EJN) gives a visual representation of the 5 point test developed by EJN to help journalists deal with hate speech. It highlights some questions to be asked in the gathering, preparation and dissemination of news and information that will help journalists and editors place what is said and who is saying it in an ethical context.

The infographic is also available in Albanian Arabic Dutch English French,  Indonesian ,Macedonian Serbian , Turkish and Ukrainian .
