    How Much Do You Actually Know About Human Rights?

    On the 10th of December, we celebrate the International Human Rights Day. For this ocasion, the No Hate Speech Movement has prepared this little quizz, to test you on your Human Rights knowledge. Will you pass the test?

    1. What is the accepted International definition of hate speech?

      Correct! 
      Wrong! 

      There is no universally accepted definition of the expression “hate speech”.

      The European Court of Human Rights case-law has established certain parameters making it possible to characterise “hate speech” in order to exclude it from the protection afforded to freedom of expression or freedom of assembly and association in Europe.

    2. Is freedom of expression an absolute protected right in Europe?

      Correct! 
      Wrong! 

      No!

      In some cases where expression or speech is deemed to be “hate speech” within paramaters set down by the European Court of Human Rights then the protections afforded to freedom of expression can be lifted.
