    Differentiating hate speech: a systemic discrimination approach.Katharine Gelber - 2021 - Critical Review of International Social and Political Philosophy 24 (4):393-414.
    In this paper I develop a systemic discrimination approach to defining a narrowly construed category of ‘hate speech’, as speech that harms to a sufficient degree to warrant government regulation. This is important due to the lack of definitional clarity, and the extraordinarily wide usage, of the term. This article extends current literature on how hate speech can harm by identifying under what circumstances speakers have the capacity to harm, and under what circumstances targets are vulnerable to harm. It also (...)

  4. Freedom of political speech, hate speech and the argument from democracy: The transformative contribution of capabilities theory.Katharine Gelber - 2010 - Contemporary Political Theory 9 (3):304-324.
    Much of the most influential free speech scholarship emphasises that ‘political speech’ warrants the very highest standards of protection because of its centrality to self-governance. This central idea mitigates against efforts to justify the regulation of political speech and renders some egregiously offensive or harmful speech worthy of protection from a theoretical perspective. Yet paradoxically, in practice, in many liberal democracies such speech is routinely restricted. In this paper, I develop an argument that is compatible with both the argument from (...)

    Terrorist-Extremist Speech and Hate Speech: Understanding the Similarities and Differences.Katharine Gelber - 2019 - Ethical Theory and Moral Practice 22 (3):607-622.
    The terms ‘hate’ and ‘hatred’ are increasingly used to describe the rationale of a kind of anti-Western terrorist-extremist speech. This discursively links this kind of terrorist-extremist speech with the well-known concept of ‘hate speech’, a link that suggests the two phenomena are more alike than they are unlike. In this article I interrogate the similarities and differences between anti-Western terrorist-extremist speech and hate speech as they manifest in Western liberal democratic states along two axes: to whom the speech is addressed, (...)

    Diagonal accountability: freedom of speech in Australia.Katharine Gelber - 2017 - Australian Journal of Human Rights 23 (2):209-219.
    In recent years, free speech debates have featured unusually prominently in public debate in Australia. At the same time, significant restrictions on freedom of speech have been enacted in the context of counterterrorism legislation, asylum-seeker policy, and anti-protest laws. This article critically analyses these policy developments through the lens of a capabilities approach-informed analysis of the importance of free speech. This engenders an understanding of the constitutive role of speech in individuals’ lives, and through that its vital role in democratic (...)

    Political speech practice in Australia: a study in local government powers.Katharine Gelber - 2005 - Australian Journal of Human Rights 11 (1):203-231.
    This paper seeks to remedy in part the lack of empirical studies on practices of.political speech in Australia by investigating local governments’ powers and perceptions of their role in regulating practices of political speech. It reports on the results of an empirical study conducted in 2003–04 of local government regulation of political speech within the public space constituted by pedestrian malls. Regulatory provisions are considered in the context of attitudes towards, and experiences of, practices of political speech within these arenas. (...)
