The international community faces an ongoing challenge in protecting the rights to freedom of opinion and expression while also combating incitement to genocide and preventing violence based on hatred.
Our Work on Hate Speech and Incitement to Genocide
Susan Benesch, Edith Everett Genocide Prevention Fellow at the United States Holocaust Memorial Museum, writes about the 2013 election in Kenya.
On February 5, 2013 the Museum’s Center for the Prevention of Genocide co-sponsored a panel discussion among experts on hate speech and incitement to genocide.
In February 2009, the Museum convened a seminar to examine the role speech acts play in genocide and related crimes against humanity.
