Future Free Speech have contributed with a chapter:

Reimagining the Current Regulatory Framework to Online Hate Speech: Why Making Way for Alternative Methods is Paramount for Free Speech

By Jacob Mchangama and Natalie Alkiviadou 

Book launch to celebrate the publication of Counterspeech: Multidisciplinary Perspectives on Countering Dangerous Speech, edited by Stefanie Ullmann (CRASSH) and Marcus Tomalin (CRASSH).

This volume explores linguistic, ethical and legal aspects of counterspeech, looks at the functions and effectiveness of counterspeech from anthropological, practical and sociological perspectives and addresses the question of how we can use modern technological advances to make counterspeech a more instantaneous and efficient option to respond to harmful language online. It is a great resource for scholars and students of linguistics, philosophy of language, media and communication studies, digital humanities, natural language processing, international human rights law, anthropology and sociology, and interdisciplinary research methods.

The launch will include talks from contributors to the book and will be followed by a drinks reception.
