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.
