During the podcast we discuss the right of free speech as a fundamental right and its correlation with humor, satire and parody.

We also delve into the concept of hate speech and how this interacts or affects free speech.

Dr. Alkiviadou explains the ECHR jurisprudence on the matter and gives examples from decided cases. We also compare the right of free speech between Europe and the US and the First Amendment.

Inevitably we talk about recent developments in the US like the decision of mainstream social media tycoons Facebook and Twitter to ban the accounts of President Trump following the recent events at the Capitol.
