Constitutional Law Lecture Series – Sixth Lecture: “Freedom of Speech & Expression in a Functioning Democracy”
November 23, 2017 @ 17:00 - 19:30
Freedom of expression is regarded by many as the cornerstone of a democratic society. It is recognised in the Universal Declaration of Human Rights and many other international human rights instruments. The Federal Constitution guarantees freedom of speech and expression as stated in Article 10. It comes as no surprise that attempts to stifle the exercise of one’s freedom of expression has been met with fierce resistence from civil society organisations and concerned citizens.
How have our laws fared in promoting and protecting freedom of expression in Malaysia? Do we have a conducive environment to encourage a vibrant modern democracy? Have we made progress or regressed?
