Discussion ‘New Measurement of Freedom of Expression’
5th August, 2.00-4.00 pm, Londonskaya Hotel, Aivazovsky Hall.
What is happening with freedom of expression nowadays?
When everything is filtered by people themselves in their fear of possible punishments.
When life gradually loses a chance to be evaluated.
When… But, may it be good? As there are many talks round about, and there is less and less freedom.
We will be discussing all of this.

Issues to be discussed:
⧫ Impact of the digital era on freedom of expression
⧫ Can freedom of expression be absolute?
⧫ Limits of freedom of expression
⧫ Impact of the new ethics on freedom of expression. Is it not a law for us in Ukraine?
⧫ Self-censoring.
⧫ Freedom of expression in literature.
