The MCC Center for Freedom of Speech addresses important issues of freedom of expression in the light of the challenges posed by the latest communication technologies. Topics include the protection of the privacy of public figures vis-à-vis the media, privacy and freedom of expression, the prohibition of hate speech, freedom of the arts, freedom of science and education, blasphemy and freedom of expression, the concept of freedom of the press, legal issues of social media, freedom of expression in social media, the legal status and problems of search engines.
The aim of the MCC Center for Freedom of Speech is to highlight that freedom of expression is no longer limited only by the will of the state and legal regulation, but also by the emergence of new restrictive forces (private regulation by internet service providers, exclusion or self-censorship resulting from changing cultural standards, etc.). The Center for Freedom of Speech addresses both "traditional" and new issues of freedom of expression, with a deep theoretical grounding and following recent developments in practice. It aims to participate in the international debate on the issues under consideration, by inviting foreign guests and organising events. The aim is also to increase the supply of academic staff and to stimulate the interest of university students (especially lawyers) who would like to work on similar issues in their future careers.
