June 2013: The Multipolar Challenge to Free Expression
The rapid emergence of a multipolar world and the growing political and economic importance of a range of powers including China, India, Brazil and South Africa is increasingly having a significant impact on support for, and repression of, free expression. Many key international issues, from human rights to climate change and free trade, are no longer dominated either by one particular world view or split simply between two rival powers. While China and Russia remain at the repressive end of the spectrum, how widely free speech is defended internationally depends increasingly on the positions of countries like India and Brazil as much as on the values and practices of the US and Europe. In all these democracies, free speech is still in the ascendant but with too many examples of excessive constraints ¬ from internet surveillance and takedown requests to criminalisation of offensive speech.
Index's special report will look at whether there is a multipolar challenge, where constraints at home and lack of courage and principle on the international stage, mean our right to free speech is at risk as the multipolar order continues to develop.

Index on Censorship is an award-winning magazine, devoted to protecting and promoting free expression. International in outlook, outspoken in comment, Index on Censorship reports on free expression violations around the world, publishes banned writing and shines a light on vital free expression issues through original, challenging and intelligent commentary and analysis, publishing some of the world's finest writers.
Index on Censorship was first published in 1972 in response to show trials in Moscow. The idea behind the magazine was to make public the circumstances of those who are silenced in their own countries, wherever that may be, and to publish their work. Since the end of communism, and with an increasingly fragmented world, new and troubling questions have surfaced, some of them challenging the primacy of free expression itself: religious extremism; relative values and cultural difference; the rise of nationalism; the rewriting of history; hate speech; obscenity; freedom on the Internet.
We welcome contributions from anyone concerned with issues of free speech. Our articles range widely from essays to opinion pieces, from oral testimony to fiction and poetry. Index on Censorship is a magazine of record, but we also publish articles intended to promote debate. The views expressed in the magazine are not necessarily those of the editors, the publisher, or the advisory committee.
www.indexoncensorship.org is the place to turn for free expression news and comment from around the world, providing breaking news, lively debate and in-depth analysis from our team of international contributors.
Our international and UK-based events and projects put our causes into action.
Our international projects bridge the gap between the monitoring of abuse and effective advocacy for change through facilitation, research, publication, advocacy and new commissioned works. Index on Censorship:
