The Limits of Digital Freedom

As digital technology continues to transform the culture of activism and access to information - from revolution in Egypt to reporting on the secret services in Russia - Index on Censorship assesses the ways and means of using new media to get the word out and asks if the United States is internet freedom's best friend.

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.
