American University in Cairo
Thurs 14, 12.15 – 1.15pm (GMT+2), Online event: “The Right to Protection from Incitement to Hatred, an Unsettled Right”, a book discussion by Mona Elbahtimy,
Diplomat at the Egyptian Ministry of Foreign Affairs and Academic specialized in human rights.
Against the backdrop of the new globalized hate speech dynamics, the nature and scope of States’ obligations according to international human rights law on prohibiting incitement to hatred have increased importance. They have become a controversial issue within multilateral human rights diplomacy. This book traces the journey of this norm in three analytical domains; its emergence, relevant supranational jurisprudence, and the recent standard-setting attempts within the UN. The book argues that five internal features of the norm strongly influenced its difficult path within international human rights law.
