Description

Edited by one of Canada's foremost media law scholars, this book, a project of The Commonwealth Association for Education in Journalism and Communication (CAEJC), assesses the state of freedom of expression in the Commonwealth through contributions by select legal scholars, jurists, and journalists.

Essays provide an overview of the meaning of freedom of expression from theoretical, historical, and sociological perspectives. Country reports that provide an inventory of existing media laws and administrative practices in several Commonwealth nations complement the essays, and include: Cameroon, Canada, Ghana, India, Jamaica, Kenya, Malaysia, Mauritius, New Zealand, Pakistan, Papua New Guinea, South Africa, Sri Lanka, and the United Kingdom. Finally, CAEJC provides a statement of principles that are viewed as essential to the protection of freedom of expression.

This book is extremely useful to journalists, lawyers, students, and anyone working with mass media or international affairs.
