Dr Martyn Frampton gives evidence to Home Affairs Committee on hate crimes

Dr Martyn Frampton

Senior Fellow

Policy Exchange’s Head of Security and Extremism Dr Martyn Frampton appeared in front of the House of Commons Home Affairs Committee to give evidence to its inquiry on hate crime and its violent consequences.

Dr Frampton discussed the recommendations in Policy Exchange“s agenda-setting report The New Netwar and repeated its call for online publishers such as Facebook to do more to remove extremist content. Exclusive polling for his report showed that the public are unhappy with how social media companies operate; he argued that Brexit affords an opportunity to think about a new regulatory framework and change the balance of where liability for publication of extremist material lies.
