Index on Censorship campaigns for and defends free expression, promotes debate, and monitors threats to free speech worldwide.

For almost 50 years, Index has published work by censored writers and artists.

We believe that everyone should be free to express themselves without fear of harm or persecution – no matter what their views.

Index relies entirely on the support of donors and readers to do its work.

I agree to receive the Index on Censorship weekly newsletter, monthly events newsletter and periodic campaign updates via email.
