Online hate crime and hate speech: Understanding and responding to digital hate
Equally Ours is organising a seminar, in collaboration with Oxford Brookes University, on Online hate crime and hate speech. The seminar will take place at Tavis House in London on 18 September 2019, starting at 10 am.
The event will bring together leading academics, policymakers and practitioners working on hate crime to explore the nature of online hate and responses needed in the context of ongoing policy development, including the online harms white paper recently published by the Government and Law Commission work in this area.
This seminar will examine the opportunities for reform and will ask:
- What is the nature of online hate crime? How does it differ from offline hate crime and hate speech?
- What harms does policy need to address? Are they experienced differently by different groups?
- How do we balance different rights in responding to online hate?
- What are the pros and cons of regulation?
Sign up to the seminar by Wednesday 4 September 2019 to secure a place - the event is by invitation only and Eventbrite will require a password, to request an invitation please use the Eventbrite link to contact the organisers.
