Contrarrestando discursos de odio contra migrantes: Una evaluación de tratados internacionales de derechos humanos e instrumentos de derecho blando

Palabras clave: Derechos humanos, libertad de expresión, discursos de odio, migrantes, refugiados, Naciones Unidas

Resumen

Desde la crisis de refugiados en el 2015, los discursos de odio contra refugiados y migrantes han aumentado significativamente, generando preocupación en las Naciones Unidas. A pesar de que no existe una definición en el derecho internacional para los conceptos de discurso de odio o xenofobia, disposiciones en tratados de derechos humanos y en derecho blando indican un deber de los Estados de proteger a migrantes frente a discursos de odio. Haciendo una revisión de tratados de derechos humanos, documentos de organismos emanados de dichos tratados y otros instrumentos de derecho blando, este artículo busca demostrar que el discurso de odio contra migrantes debería ser sancionado por ley, ya que no entra dentro del espectro del derecho a la libertad de expresión.
