Fallout: Free speech and the economic crisis

From the United States to Europe, the economic crisis has posed new threats to free expression, from restrictions on reporting and demonstrations to the rise of extremism. Is a decline in trust and a climate of self-censorship dominating the political, cultural and media landscape?

PLUS: the Russian media, lessons from the Arab Spring and the future of the internet.
