Submission to Consultation on Hate Speech
AkiDwA's submission on reform of hate speech laws in Ireland. In 2019, the Irish government announced a review of its approach to hate crime in Ireland. As part of this, the Department of Justice and Equality held a public consultation to review the current legislation on hate speech - the Incitement to Hatred Act 1989. AkiDwA submitted our recommendations for reform of the legislation based on what we have learned from our member's experiences with discrimination and hate-motivated attacks.
