Abstract

"When should freedom of speech be limited in a free society?" (p. 3). As the author notes, the answer to this question is far from easy. However, while some limitations on speech will always exist, ill-conceived hate speech laws enforced through penal law should never be considered to be a valid restriction on speech. This is the view taken by Coleman as he considers hate speech laws in the European context.
