Politics and Freedom of Speech
How do we advance free debate in the age of information wars?
Free speech and constructive political debate are essential to human dignity and to the collaborative task of discerning the common good. Yet free speech may be threatened or restricted by authoritarian regimes, by groups intolerant of diverse opinions, or impoverished through misuse of social media.
Free Speech at the Crossroads; comprises monthly discussions of specific topics with a four-person panel chaired by Sandford J Ungar (Georgetown) and followed by Q&A chaired by Michael Scott, (Blackfriars). Click here for a list of topics and YouTube recordings.
