Ireland’s Hate Speech Bill will have a global impact on what we can discuss online

Ireland’s new Hate Speech Bill offers no clear definition of what “hate” entails. Experts warn this could pave the way for the criminal prosecution of a wide range of expression considered unfavourable by authorities.

The Bill, officially known as the Criminal Justice (Incitement to Violence or Hatred and Hate Offences) Bill 2022, has passed through the lower house of the Irish parliament, the Dáil Éireann, and is currently at the Third Stage, or Committee Stage, in the upper house, the Seanad Éireann.

“The world is watching Ireland. The censorial ‘hate speech bill’, if passed, would not only shut down conversation nationally – as the home of various international social media headquarters, it would have a global impact on what we can all discuss online,” Michael Shellenberger said.

Shellenberger was speaking at the Ireland Free Speech Summit, which was held in Trinity College Dublin on Tuesday 18 June 2024 and hosted by Free Speech Ireland and supported by ADF International.  The Summit saw a gathering of global voices for free speech expressing their concern about the pending Irish “Hate Speech” Bill.
