Who's afraid of free speech?

What should we be free to express about ourselves, other people, their religions, sexual orientations or views? Is Facebook a force for good or evil? How can we control such a private superpower anyway? Drawing on his latest book Free Speech: Ten Principles for a Connected World, leading political writer, and winner of the British Academy’s 2017 Nayef Al-Rodhan Prize for Global Cultural Understanding, Timothy Garton Ash considers the challenges and opportunities for free speech in our time.

This event was part of the British Academy's season on Identities & Belonging.
