Featuring Prof. Yuval Shany
The lecture evaluates, through the lens of international human rights law, some prominent features of the discourse concerning the legal regulation and mechanisms aimed at curbing online antisemitism and other forms of hate speech. Utilizing international human rights law as a point of reference offers a broadly accepted critical perspective for evaluating the hate speech policies of technology companies that operate on a global scale, as well as for assessing the propriety of the regulatory efforts undertaken by national governments. As history shows, regulatory efforts undertaken by national governments have often gone too far in limiting freedom of expression.
