Katleen Gabriels: Interviews and media appearances

Dr. Katleen Gabriels has made several media appearances to discuss issues ranging from safety and privacy to hate speech and social media:

  • Interviewed by dS Avond, the digital evening paper of the daily newspaper De Standaard, on hate speech on social media. The interview focused on the case of a young Belgian (with a Turkish background, he himself was born and raised in Belgium), living in Limburg, was murdered in the New Year’s Eve attack in Istanbul, which gave rise to hate and racist speech on social media. To read the whole interview see here.
  • Published an opinion piece in the Belgian daily newspaper De Standaard, on the tension between safety and privacy (especially with the terror threats of IS). To read the whole piece see here.
