Abstract
The paper focuses on the claim that citizens’ expressive interests in speech warrant protection to hate speech. I analyse this view by exploring three different arguments that Ronald Dworkin has produced in recent years. The arguments I advance holds that Dworkin’s fails to show that such interests are sufficient for protection. Drawing from some research on social psychology I claim that hate speech is harmful in a justice-relevant manner. If I am correct, then, given Dworkin’s ideas about integrity and equality of resources, he cannot claim that restricting hate speech fails to treat speakers with less respect and concern.
