The Global Research Initiative (GRI) is a network of scholars and practitioners who document and analyze dangerous speech in their home countries, to better understand it, and especially to learn how to diminish its harmful effects. Dangerous speech is any form of human expression (such as words or images) that can inspire people to commit or condone violence against another group of people.

Previous fellows have been scholars, activists, and journalists, and have come from Australia, Brazil, Croatia, Czechia, Denmark, Germany, Hungary, India, Japan, Kenya, the Philippines, Poland, South Africa, South Susan, Spain, Sri Lanka, and the United States.
