Hate Speech: the Present Implications of a Historical Dilemma
- by Floyd Abrams "Although
there are numerous reasons for the high level of judicial consensus regarding
the treatment of hate speech, there are five repeatedly expressed factors,
or concerns, which I believe are at the heart of past interpretations and
will continue to be at the heart of future interpretations. These five recurring
factors are: (a) doctrine, (b) precedent, (c) prudence, (d) American political
culture and (e) the high risk of suppressing any speech."

Vilification and ICERD in Australia
Author : Louise Johns
Organisation : Murdoch University School of Law
Keywords : hate speech, racial vilification, ICERD,
Abstract : This report deals with the requirement for countries to make racial
vilification illegal under article 4(a) of the International Convention on
the Elimination of Racial Discrimination. It examines the content and extent
of this requirement, considering attempts by the UK, Canada and NZ to comply.
The report then considers Australia's attempts to comply, with emphasis on
the proposed _Racial Hatred Act_, and continues with a brief look at State
law in this area. It concludes with a consideration of certain public concerns
which may prevent the Commonwealth law being passed.
