This research offers a thorough conceptual analysis to differentiate between hate speech, misinformation, and disinformation. It was commissioned by the UN Office of the Special Adviser on the Prevention of Genocide and the UN Department of Peace Operations and seeks to determine where they diverge and intersect, especially in high-risk and conflict-affected areas. The paper examines both international humanitarian law and human rights legislation, highlighting the need for measures that protect free speech while addressing harmful discourse. It also draws from interviews conducted with a subset of fifteen employees of UN and humanitarian organizations who operate in any or all of these three areas.
