Eric Heinze

is Professor of Law & Humanities at Queen Mary University of London. He is the author of The Concept of Injustice (Routledge, 2013) and The Logic of Constitutional Rights (Ashgate, 2005).


Rejecting the classical liberal defences of free speech, Eric Heinze insists that the strongest case for free speech is grounded on specifically democratic principles. And that hate speech bans can never claim a legitimate role in fully fledged democracies.
