”Yttrandefriheten idag” (Freedom of expression today) by Joy Hyvärinen considers freedom of expression in today’s public debates and the role of freedom of expression as a democratic right.
A strong democracy requires a strong right to freedom of expression and that the right is realised equally. Everyone has a right to free expression, which includes the right to contribute to debates about the limits of free expression in today’s society.
The publication (29 pages) considers legislation and international agreements, and topics such as press freedom and hate speech, and focuses in particular on freedom of expression on the internet.
