Hate Speech in Namibia:How bad is the problem and how do we respond?

The Breakfast meeting will be taking place on Friday, 8 June 2018 in Windhoek, Namibia.

Freedom of expression is a basic and constitutionally protected right in Namibia, but does this protection extend to discriminatory or even hateful speech? In recent times, there have been calls for more stringent laws that regulate or even criminalise certain forms of speech because of the impact they may have on racial and ethnic harmony. Others have suggested that laws regulating speech may cause more harm than good. Does Namibia have a hate speech problem? What are its underlying causes? What can be done to respond to it effectively? Please join us to get an overview of the present situation and to contribute to an open discussion on how best we can respond. RSVP: Lis Jordan at lis(at) or 061-417523 by Tuesday, 5 June 2018
