Please join us for a talk by Arturo Carrillo, Director of the Cyber-Violence Project at George Washington Law School, who will address a range of issues relating to digital incivility with en emphasis on cyber-violence. What are the most common negative behaviors online? How are these perceived and experienced by users? What is cyber-violence? Who does it target? What steps can be taken to prevent such behaviors? How should they be addressed once they’ve occurred? What challenges does the legal system face when dealing with cyber-violence related offenses?

This event is co-sponsored by the Berkman-Klein Center for Internet and Society and the Human Rights Program.
