evelyn douek reviews David Kaye’s latest report for Lawfare. douek contextualizes Kaye’s report and discusses hate speech, what companies should do, and international human rights law.
“Kaye’s report is a very real reckoning with the trade-offs involved in protecting free speech while dealing with the real harm caused by some forms of expression, and is an attempt to find guiding, consistent standards,” douek writes. “There is still a lot of work to be done, not least by the companies themselves, to make this a reality. But this latest report will be a useful and influential guide in that process.”
