Free Speech and the Regulation of Social Media in Egypt and Pakistan (Foreign and Comparative Law Webinar Series)
The Foreign and Comparative Law Webinar Series of classes is designed to shed light on some of the foreign and comparative law issues currently being researched by the foreign law and international law experts at the Law Library of Congress.

In recent years, there has been an increased global focus on the governmental responses to the dissemination of hate speech and false information online. This webinar will focus on current and proposed legal frameworks for regulating unlawful/harmful speech on social media platforms in Egypt and Pakistan. The presenters will address the obligations (e.g. content removal) and liabilities of social media companies, the criminalization of certain online content, and the free speech implications for these limitations on online platforms.
