Abstract

Racism has climbed the political agenda at national, European and international levels.’ Reports from national and international non-governmental organisations (NGO’s) and inter-governmental organisations have focused considerable attention on racism and xenophobia and document an increase in racism, xenophobia, anti-Semitism and race-related activities.* As racism has climbed the political agendas, so there has been a substantial increase in the number of national, European and international legal instruments devoted to it.3 In particular, race-related restrictions on freedom of expression (‘hate-speech’) are increasing and seem likely to continue to do so.
