Extreme Speech and Democracy

Oxford University Press

This chapter shows that the French Republic has previously recognized slavery as crime against humanity and has adopted such radical bans and celebrations: in 1848, at the time of the permanent abolishment of slave trade and slavery; and in the 1880s, when the Republic was definitively put into place as France's form of government. Examining the circumstances in which these institutionalizations took place provides an understanding of the more recent laws in a historical context.

Keywords:   France, slavery, freedom of speech, genocide, Jews
