Esther Janssen conducts research into the relationship between freedom of expression and hate speech. Hate speech consists of statements that stigmatise certain groups in society. Janssen’s aim is to develop new insights in relation to what extent – that is whether, and if so how – restrictions to hate speech, notably on the basis of religion and uttered in the context of a public debate, can be determined in a consistent manner. To this end, her research compares Dutch law with French law that is relevant to the issue of hate speech.
