ISGAP Flashpoint

The Law and the Internet (France - Europe - International Conventions)

In France and in many European countries in particular, the provisions prohibiting incitement to racial hatred and the dissemination of racist remarks constitute reasonable and necessary restrictions on the right to freedom of speech. Many laws form the framework for combating racism and antisemitism. Furthermore, these countries are concerned with avoiding the trivialization of racist expression by directing criminal policy not just to the most serious cases, but also to the condemnation of ordinary racism by making convictions known, improving reporting and, above all, by developing a real media education policy for young people. In this short text, we will highlight some features of the penal provisions in the fight against racism and antisemitism on the internet.
