    • Abstract:
      The issue of hate speech has received significant attention in the past years following the growing number of incidents in different parts of the world. Freedom of expression is an essential element of democracy and one of the basic human rights. However, freedom of expression can be subject to restrictions in certain legally defined situations pursuing legitimate objectives, in accordance with the international standards. The balance between freedom of expression, on one hand, and fight against the hate speech, on the other, is very difficult task. The efforts to prevent and combat hate speech should not exceed the limitations of freedom of expression as an essential part of democracy. [ABSTRACT FROM AUTHOR]
