Freedom Book Fair – Freedom of speech versus Hate Speech

fb-event-cover-photo-free-speech-vs-hate-speechThe opening event of our The Hague Freedom Book Fair 2017 is a debate on “Freedom of speech versus Hate Speech”, two values that challenges each other. Laterly, more and more often, the contradiction seemed to cause problems. Time to take a closer look at these two important anchor stones in the Dutch society. What do they mean to us, and to people in other countries?

Freedom of speech has been misused in order to marginalize minorities. At the same time, for example in Bangladesh, voices of critical bloggers and writers are cilenced because of the accusation of hate speech. How can we keep societies healthy and democratic?her
