REPORT
UN report on the right to artistic expression and creation
29 Apr 2013
BY INDEX ON CENSORSHIP

The 25-page report is now available in all UN languages.

“This is the first time such a comprehensive study is carried out. Unfortunately artists all over the world are trapped between political, religious, cultural and economic interests,” said Programme Manager Ole Reitov, who has worked as a consultant to the UN office during the preparation of the report.

“It is not exactly an optimistic report. Too many artists have been killed, attacked or imprisoned in recent years. Censorship legislations in many countries are neither respecting international conventions nor providing any options for artists and cultural producers to appeal.”
