About this title


The essays in the first part of the book set out the political and legal context for the operation of hate speech laws in Australia. The chapters include consideration of the legal, policy, and historical context for vilification; the ways in which the language of hatred is changing; and a new look at the longstanding debate about the tension between freedom of speech and hate speech as a conflict between liberty and equality. Part two addresses concrete issues relating to the operation of anti-vilification laws in practice. It contains chapters on issues ranging from the use of evidence in litigating hate speech complaints to the verbal abuse of groups or individuals under cover of religious freedom. In the final part, the essays consider hate speech regulation within a broader human rights framework, taking into account the emergence of bills of rights in Australian states. The book draws on a broad range of academic and practical experts.
