Free Speech: Transatlantic Normative and Empirical Perspectives (Half Term: Berlin)

Staff

ENROLLMENT BY APPLICATION OR INTERVIEW. DEPARTMENTAL PERMISSION REQUIRED.

Free speech has been increasingly controversial in recent years. For some it is both a core liberal principle & an indispensable aspect of democracy, for others it has become a cover for conduct that deeply violates human dignity, but also the entrenchment of economic & financial power in a 'Second Gilded Age' In this course, we examine the general normative underpinnings of free speech & the different forms that the legal operationalization of free speech has taken in the US & Europe. Finally, we look at free speech in the context of urgent contemporary challenges.
