Hate speech has always been present in society, but it nevertheless remains legally unregulated in most modern democratic societies. One part of the profession calls for a uniform definition of hate speech and the punishment of its use, while the other part warns that strict regulation of hate speech would violate the right to freedom of expression. The diploma thesis analyzes the role of actors in the public policy process in the field of hate speech in Slovenia, relations between them and power relations in the established public policy network. The analysis is based on the case of the Protection against Discrimination Act, which at least partly includes the regulation of hate speech. The relations between the actors were determined through the analysis of the minutes of the sessions of public consultations and hearings at the parent working body and the National Assembly. The power relations between the actors were determined according to the share of the established interests of the individual actor in the final content of the Protection against Discrimination Act. After the analysis, we found that some actors managed to assert their interests to a greater extent than others, so we can conclude that some actors in the public policy network had more power than others.At the end of the analysis, we were faced with an additional question about the reasons why hate speech in Slovenia still remains unregulated.
