The European Approach to Legal Regulation of Hate Speech, Bjørnar Borvik, April 23

Date: April 23, 2019 (Tuesday)

Time: 12:15pm-1:45pm

Venue: STL 209, PKU Shenzhen

Speaker: Bjørnar Borvik, Professor of Law, University of   Bergen Faculty of Law

Moderator: Thomas Man, Associate Dean and Professor from Practice, STL

Abstract

The legal regulation of hate speech must balance conflicting human rights: Freedom of ex-pression is protected by Article 10 of the Council of Europe Convention for the Protection of Human Rights, while Article 4 of the UN Convention on the Elimination of All Forms of Ra-cial Discrimination entails an obligation to criminalize hate speech. In the lecture, the Stras-bourg Court’s approach to this clash between human rights will be outlined, as well as select-ed judgments on hate speech from the Norwegian Supreme Court. Emphasis is put on de-scribing the current legal situation, but major steps leading up the present situation will also be pinpointed, as they have a decisive impact on the overall balancing between the human rights involved.
