On the 12th of May 2016, the LOSS Project held a one day seminar with a panel debate titled ‘Hate Speech Online: Regulation, Liability and Fundamental Rights’.
While organising the academic events, LOSS Project’s goal is to bring together specialists from various fields and diverse backgrounds. This time we welcomed experts on the topic of hate speech online from academia as well as practitioners from grass-root level, such as Tarlach McGonagle, Institute for Information Law in Amsterdam, Adeline Hulin, Division of Freedom of Expression and Media Development UNESCO, Secretary General of the Finnish League of Human Rights Kaari Mattila, Tommaso de Benetti, game developer Housemarque, Karmen Turk, litigation attorney and others.
The seminar was concluded with a panel debate, which explored the most effective ways to tackle hate speech in the online environment.
We thank all the presenters, panelists and participants for their contributions!
