Regardless of Frontiers
Global Freedom of Expression in a Troubled World
Columbia UP, 2021
Freedom of expression is at risk, and that’s a global human rights problem.
After World War II, institutions such as the United Nations organized a global template for human rights, including freedom of expression and access to government information. But as Columbia University president Lee C. Bollinger and United Nations special rapporteur on extrajudicial killings Agnes Callamard relate, the rise of populist politics and neoliberal economics has brought attacks on freedom of expression and the media. These deeply informed articles will resonate with readers who care about democracy and a free press.
