Main Thematic Focus
Hate speech Racism & xenophobia Integration & inclusion
The chapter focuses on anti-immigrant hate speech with two goals: 1) it sets out to overview the most current developments in the so-called debate on hate speech in Slovenia, and 2) seeks to answer the question of how best to address the rising racist anti-immigration and anti-Muslim attitudes. Two main findings of the chapter are that Slovenia faces a lack of mechanisms for the prosecution of hate speech and that a number of civil society actors have taken up the initiative to act.
