Wednesday 9 January 2013, by Un Ponte Per...

The main documents in the international rights regime which are concerned with freedom of expression and information are:

- The Universal Declaration of Human Rights (UDHR):

- The International Covenant on Civil and Political Rights (ICCPR):

Among the regional agreements, two are interesting for our regional project:

- the African Charter on Human and People’s Rights:

- the European Convention on Human Rights:

To go further:
- The UN Human Rights Council’s General Comment No. 34 of 2011 is concerned with freedoms of opinion and expression:
