Freedom of expression in the modern world – Is online abuse silencing women?

december 13, 2022 @ 12:00 e m - 1:00 e m

What is victimization online, and how does it affect people being targeted? Is this a gendered form of victimization? These questions will be discussed in relation to the challenges we face, legally, when balancing the right to freedom of expression with the right to not be abused online.
In this lecture I will talk about these questions, with a specific focus on women being targeted online, and how this can affect their possibilities to partake in the public discussion.
About the lecturer Therese Enarsson:
Therese’s research is currently primarily fundamental rights in relation to the internet and social media. In recent years she has researched how online abuse affects the rights of victims of crime, and their right to redress when subjected to online abuse and racism.
Therese is also an award-winning teacher and was the most recent recipient of Umeå Student Union’s Pedagogical Prize.
Human Rights Week:
Changing global power relations, the rise of authoritarian leaders and growing social divisions cause an increasing pressure on human rights, all around the world. This underscores the importance of raising awareness of human rights.
