The Council of Europe and the Croatian Agency for Electronic Media will organise a conference to examine the ways different European states have regulated hate speech, focusing on the specific role and work of national regulatory authorities, the judiciary and media self-regulatory bodies.
Organised under the Croatian Chairmanship of the Committee of Ministers, the event will bring together representatives of these authorities and bodies from Central, Eastern and South-East Europe, and experts from other European countries.
Nina Obuljen Koržinek, Minister of Culture of Croatia, and Patrick Penninckx, Head of Information Society Department of the Council of Europe, will speak at the opening.
The Special Representative of the Secretary General on Migration and Refugees, Tomáš Boček, will address the conference on the second day.
