The multipolar challenge to free expression

Uncertain terrain

Our special report explores dramatic shifts in the landscape of freedom of expression in recent years.

We are now living in a multipolar world, where emerging powers command considerable influence and where economics, politics and cultural expression are being redefined. The protection of free speech in one country may amount to criminal insult in another. Whether it's religious offence, public order or online freedom, India, Brazil, the United States and Russia have vastly different approaches. How they position themselves on the international stage - and how they resolve matters when countries clash - could have enormous impact for the future of free expression.

Includes articles by: Guy Berger; John Sauven; Salil Tripathi; Frank La Rue; Ronald Deibert and more.
