Restrictions of online freedom of expression have expanded alarmingly in the past years. Until now, most of Europe has remained silent. But now, after events in Northern Africa and the Middle East, it is time for European leaders to give it the attention it deserves in European policy. What could Europe do to stop online censorship from spreading further?

You are cordially invited to a key afternoon event on the freedom of the Internet. Come hear leading voices of free expression discuss how Europe could step up its fight for Internet freedom of expression.
