Online extremism and internet hate speech show no signs of abating, and have been linked with violent atrocities across the country and around the world. In this talk, two experts on internet speech issues address the following questions: What is the best way to deal with hate speech on the internet? What role should governments, social media companies, and others play in curbing internet hate speech? What other options are there for addressing online extremism?

Rebecca MacKinnon is founding director of Ranking Digital Rights, a program that promotes freedom of expression and privacy on the internet

Becca Lewis researches online political subcultures and grassroots media movements, with a
focus on influence-building, media manipulation, and disinformation efforts among these groups.
