Ignored, abused, and suppressed: why millions of us have lost our power

Edited by:


November 2013 | SAGE Publications Ltd
This issue’s special report looks at development and the access of minority voices to free expression, and why their rights need to be defended, whether it’s the rural poor, women in Egypt or LGBT communities. What obstacles and discrimination do these groups face?  We examine how and if they are able to communicate their ideas, views and the needs of their community.  

Authors include:
Philip Pullman
Peter Kellner
Amartya Sen
Shubhranshu Choudhary
Nic Dawes

The magazine’s “In Focus” section will look at free expression among Afghan women as foreign military forces prepare to depart;  press freedom in Honduras in Colombia; and powerful photography from Azerbaijan.
