S3E10:Free­dom of Expres­sion in an Unequal World

This episode explores chal­lenges gen­er­at­ed by the dig­i­tal age and their impact on free­dom of expres­sion in an unequal world. What threats does dis­in­for­ma­tion pose to democ­ra­cy? Why are minori­ties unable to exer­cise their right to free expres­sion equal­ly in the dig­i­tal space? And how can big data and tech cor­po­ra­tions be sub­ject to account­abil­i­ty and regulation?

Guests fea­tured in this episode:

Irene Kahn, the first woman to ever hold the man­date of UN Spe­cial Rap­por­teur for Free­dom of Opin­ion and Expres­sion. Pre­vi­ous­ly, Irene was Sec­re­tary-Gen­er­al of Amnesty Inter­na­tion­al (2001−2009) and Direc­tor-Gen­er­al of the Inter­na­tion­al Devel­op­ment Law Orga­ni­za­tion (2010 to 2019).
