Event Description

We hear too many incorrect assertions that "hate speech"—which has no generally accepted definition—is either absolutely unprotected or absolutely protected from censorship. Although U.S. law allows government to punish hateful or discriminatory speech in specific contexts when it directly causes imminent serious harm, the government may not punish such speech solely because its message is disfavored, disturbing, or vaguely feared to possibly contribute to some future harm.

Are "hate speech" laws effective or counterproductive? Should hate speech be protected under the first amendment?

Nadine Strossen is the John Marshall Harlan II Professor of Law at New York Law School and the former president of the American Civil Liberties Union.

In October 2018, Carnegie Council's Asia Dialogues program led a fact-finding trip to Manila to investigate the effects of climate change on the Philippines. How is the encroaching threat of climate change reshaping culture, politics, and even faith? How can the claim of economic prosperity be reconciled with the equally valid claim of sustainability and conservation?
