Free Speech and the Regulation of Social Media in Egypt and Pakistan (Foreign and Comparative Law Webinar Series)


In recent years, there has been an increased global focus on the governmental responses to the dissemination of hate speech and false information online.

The presenters will address the obligations (e.g. content removal) and liabilities of social media companies, the criminalization of certain online content, and the free speech implications for these limitations on online platforms.
