After the Paris terror attack in January 2015, some Norwegian political parties, media outlets, and NGO’s have argued that public discourse needs an ethics in order to both provide free speech and avoid blasphemy.
In contrast, many have criticized such an approach to democratic opinion- and will-formation for implying the opposite, namely the undermining of free speech as well as uncertainty regards to the role of blasphemy. Still, is it possible to develop a political ethics, that is, a standard that is related to certain norms of civility, against which we can judge our public use of free speech? By Odin Lysaker, Associate Professor, University of Agder. Comments: Dr. juris Anine Kierulf.
Seminaret arrangeres i samarbeid med Forskningsmiljøet Norsk sakprosa
