Description

Democracy, Legitimacy, and Hate Speech: An Interdisciplinary Conference in Law, Politics, and Philosophy

Open public discourse is a necessary condition of democratic society. Does this mean that the state should refrain from legally restricting racist and religious hate speech? What are the legitimacy conditions for democratic governments more generally? And how do democratic ideals relating to open public discourse interact with democratic ideals relating to social equality? This conference will bring together a range of perspectives in response to these questions, with a particular focus on Professor Eric Heinze’s recent book Hate Speech and Democratic Citizenship (OUP 2016). Speakers include:

John Gardner, University of Oxford
Amanda Greene, University College London
Eric Heinze, Queen Mary University of London
Jeff Howard, University College London
Rae Langton, Cambridge University
Maleiha Malik, Kings College London
Fabienne Peter, University of Warwick
Gavin Phillipson, Durham University
Robert Simpson, Monash University

Attendance is open to all academic staff, students, and members of the general public. Registration is not strictly required, but is preferable to assist with planning. For more information and the full schedule, see https://philevents.org/event/show/31094.
