Abstract: Recommends that the Governments: include the issues of racism, xenophobia and antisemitism in all current and future work at international level aimed at the suppression of illegal content on the Internet; reflect on the preparation of a specific protocol to the future Convention on cyber-crime to combat racist, xenophobic and antisemitic offences committed via the Internet; strengthen international co- operation and mutual assistance between law enforcement authorities across the world; ensure that relevant national legislation applies also to racist, xenophobic and antisemitic offences and prosecute those responsible for this kind of offences; undertake the training of law enforcement authorities; reflect on the setting up of a national consultation body which might act as a permanent monitoring centre, mediating body and partner in the preparation of codes of conduct; support existing anti-racist initiatives on the Internet as well as the development of new sites; clarify the responsibility of content host and content provider and site publishers; support the self-regulatory measures taken by the Internet industry; and increase public awareness of the problem.
