Ivan Hare QC - Is Incitement to Religious Hatred The New Blasphemy? (ext event)

Description: Gresham College Online Lecture:

Is Incitement to Religious Hatred The New Blasphemy? with Ivan Hare QC

Details and registration: https://www.gresham.ac.uk/lectures-and-events/incitement-to-hatred

"The criminalisation of religious speech before the ordinary courts in England began in 1676. Although the law on blasphemy was finally abolished in 2008, many of the troubling aspects of the old law remain in the form of the offence of incitement to religious hatred.

"This lecture will explore the current and future scope of the law of incitement to religious hatred in light of our long and troubled history of dealing with religious speech."
