re:connecting Europe 2017 – Andreea Belu: Regulating The Power of Hate Speech

Find out more at:

How does Facebook’s Newsfeed connect with the rise of online hate speech? Why is EU taking on the wrong lead in regulating this phenomenon? I will argue that the usability of hate speech is of political and economic nature. As long as this fact will not be acknowledged and addressed, hate speech will continue to grow, take new forms and be the false reason for developing internet censorship tools. A new approach to regulation is needed.
