The issue of hate speech has received significant attention from legal scholars and philosophers alike but the vast majority of this attention has been focused on presenting and critically evaluating arguments for and against hate speech bans as opposed to the prior task of conceptually analyzing the term hate speech itself. This five-part study puts right that imbalance. It goes beyond legal texts and judgments and beyond the legal concept of hate speech in an attempt to understand the general concept of hate speech and it does so using a range of well-known methods of conceptual analysis. its main objective is to analyze the concepts of hate speech and freedom of speech in international law and to reconcile the notions of hate speech, freedom of speech, and the responsibility of states to protect the affected citizens.
