Regulierung von Hassrede und Desinformation im Netz

We welcome Prof. Dr. Mathias Hong to this Leibniz Media Lunch Talk. In his lecture, he will talk about the framework of fundamental rights for the regulation of hate speech and disinformation on the internet. He will compare the fundamental rights systems in Germany, Europe and the United States of America.

Dr. Tobias Mast will provide the introduction.


12 p.m. to 1 p.m.


If you would like to attend, please register using this form. You will receive the registration data for Zoom shortly before the event.

About the Talk

How does freedom of expression as an equal and positive freedom shape the regulation of hate speech and disinformation online? How can harmful speech be countered, the equal dignity of all and the general right of personality be protected, and democracy be defended against populist and autocratic attacks without sacrificing freedom of thought and expression? The lecture will examine the answers to these questions provided by the fundamental rights systems in Germany, Europe and the United States of America.
