Event Details

What makes hate speech dangerous and when does it cross the line to incitement to violence? This event will address new thinking on the various kinds of speech in both free and unfree societies, the hallmarks of “dangerous speech”; the role of context; and what can be done to counter such speech without restricting freedom of expression. The panel will also discuss where dangerous speech is occurring today and options for addressing it.

Panelists include:
Susan Benesch, human rights and hate speech expert, Senior Fellow, World Policy Institute
Ben Blink, Policy Analyst, Free Expression and International Relations, Google
William Dolan, veteran trial attorney, Partner, Jones Day
Michael Abramowitz, Director, Center for the Prevention of Genocide, US Holocaust Memorial Museum

The program is free; regular Museum admission fee required for access to exhibitions.
This program is Co-Sponsored by the Illinois Holocaust Museum and U.S. Holocaust Memorial Museum.
