Résumé : This book offers a thorough study of the relationship between law and genocide denial from the perspectives of specialists from six countries. This controversial topic provokes strong international reactions involving emotion caused by denial along with concerns about freedom of speech. The book offers an in-depth study of the various legal issues raised by the denial of crimes against humanity, presenting arguments both in favor of and in opposition to prohibition of this expression. It does not adopt a pro or contra position, but includes chapters written by proponents and opponents of a legal prohibition on genocide denial. The book comparatively examines this issue and tackles this diverse topic by addressing not only the theoretical and philosophical aspects of denial, but also the specific problems faced by judges who implement anti-denial laws.
