In a press release, the Secretary General of La Francophonie, Ms. Louise Mushikiwabo, calls for vigilance against hate speech, particularly in the context of the electoral processes underway in the member states and governments of La Francophonie. She encourages all actors to show tolerance and restraint in all circumstances.

Several instruments and guides have been published on this subject by the OIF, including the Guide "Combating Hate Speech in the Audiovisual Media" (in French), published in 2018.
