This volume of essays examines two freedoms that play a central role in modern democracies: the free exchange and dissemination of ideas coupled with the principle of open, and therefore more accountable, government. Topics covered include freedom of speech, religion and assembly; defamation of the State and of politicians; and the protection of privacy.
