Hate speech can no longer be ignored because it is like a virus that attacks liberal democracy, an open society and the rights and freedoms of European citizens organically linked to it. This virus has already entered the central nervous system of modern democracy, of politics, from where it sends destructive impulses in every direction. It seems that the European liberals have understood that the fight against hate speech in general and hate speech in politics, in particular, must become a priority. Hate speech is incompatible with European values, and its normalisation undermines the foundations of liberal democracy based on openness, inclusiveness, social pluralism and competition of ideas. 

During this launch event experts, authors of “US/THEM. Hate Speech at the Service of Politics” will analyse the hatred discourse of populist movements and radical groups in EU member states and identify liberal solutions.
