Freedom of Speech Under Attack: Reports from the Frontlines

Short thesis

Four panelists each share their very personal stories of how authorities, lawyers, extremists, and presidents restrict free speech.


Members of Deutsche Welle’s The Bobs jury, Erkan Saka, Alissa Wahid, Rafida Bonya Ahmed, and Golnaz Esfandiari get into the details of how freedom of speech is curtailed in Turkey, Indonesia, Bangladesh, and Iran, and then explain how and why people there continue fighting for their rights.
