From the debate about allowing two controversial Canadian speakers to speak last year, to far-right extremists being radicalised online and committing the mosque attacks in Christchurch earlier this year. There is an increasing debate around where to draw the line when it comes to freedom of speech.

On the other end of the spectrum there are extremist groups like ISIS radicalising people online and people of faith isolating and calling out minorities like the LGBT community.

Free Speech or Hate Speech - Where do we draw the line?

Join us for our annual peace symposium as a panel of scholars and dignitaries discuss this very important topic. The Islamic perspective will also be presented.

Questions are welcome at the end.

The programme concludes with lunch.

This is a free event!
