Inoculating against affectively polarised content

Affective Polarisation

This video focusses on the threat of affective polarisation to democracy, highlighting in particular the threat of outgroup derogating content that employs scapegoating, ad-hominem attacks and emotive language. It zooms in on a group called ‘the hate-pushers’ to represent those that produce and spread affectively polarised content.
