Joint pro­gram & talk­ing points

The de­bate over dif­fer­ences in U.S. and European speech rights is a per­en­ni­al is­sue. But, the emer­gence of private so­cial me­dia plat­forms – and their dom­in­ance – has giv­en the is­sue a new di­men­sion and a new sense of ur­gency. What is the role and re­spons­ib­il­ity of the state and private com­pan­ies in terms of mon­it­or­ing and pre­vent­ing hate speech? Where is the di­vid­ing line between free speech and cen­sor­ship?

Join the Amer­ic­an Coun­cil on Ger­many, the Max Planck Law Net­work, and the Robert Bosch Found­a­tion Alumni As­so­ci­ation for a dis­cus­sion with Prof. Dr. Ralf Poscher, Dir­ect­or at the Max Planck In­sti­tute for the Study of Crime, Se­cur­ity and Law, and Nad­ine Strossen, John Mar­shall Har­lan II Pro­fess­or of Law at New York Law School.
