There is increasing discussion about hate speech and the issues associated with the publishing and circulation of hateful content online. But what is hate speech? And what does it mean in a New Zealand context? Is it a significant issue in New Zealand – and for whom? And what are the appropriate responses?

The panelists for this event are:
- MP Golriz Ghahraman, the first refugee to be elected to New Zealand Parliament.
- Megan Whelan, RNZ's Community Engagement Editor.
- Dave Moskovitz, a member of the Abrahamic, Open Polytechnic, and InternetNZ Councils as well as being a startup investor and director.
- Stacey Morrison, a television and radio presenter and part of Massey University’s Te Pūtahi-a-Toi Department.

The event will be chaired by Distinguished Professor Paul Spoonley is Pro Vice-Chancellor in the College of Humanities and Social Sciences, Massey University.
