This event is part of the Law debate series: 'Born Under One Law'.
This debate will discuss: Where does the freedom of expression end and hate speech begin? Should we outlaw speech that incites violence or advocates hatred based on race, religion or nationality? Would such a prohibition undermine freedom of expression or is hate speech incompatible with free speech? Is banning hate speech an attempt to silence outspoken critics? Are we not taking political correctness a bit too far? If we outlaw hate speech how do we ensure that is proportionate and fair?
Speakers include: David Keane and Article 19 in conversation with Ziauddin Sardar, introduced by Elvira Domínguez-Redondo.
Book: J. Castellino Global Minority Rights Law (Dartmouth: Ashgate, 2011)
Location: Hendon Town Hall Chamber
