We are pleased to announce that the July 2015 Kantor Center Position Paper is now available to read online or to download at: http://kantorcenter.tau.ac.il/sites/default/files/1507%20Charlie%20Hebdo_0.pdf.
In his Position Paper "After the Charlie Hebdo Attack: The Line between Freedom of Expression and Hate Speech", Dr. Andre Oboler analyzes the tension between two basic freedoms: the freedom of religion and the freedom of expression. He concludes that the apparent conflict of interests can be bridged by a more careful discourse and clarity of definitions. Such an approach, Oboler argues, will both protect the freedom of expression and safeguard the rights of religious minorities.
