While there is now global consensus that the right to freedom of expression applies in the digital environment, there is less clarity in how this applies in practice. In an effort to take a consistent approach to measuring freedom of expression online APC has developed indicators based on the UN Special Rapporteur on Freedom of Expression Frank La Rue’s groundbreaking 2011 report. The indicators have been applied in around ten countries in Asia, Latin America, and the Pacific, by organisations working in those countries. This roundtable proposes to bring together groups that have applied the indicators in order to share experiences and identify gaps in policy and practice. The goal of the roundtable is both to critically assess the strengths and weaknesses of the La Rue indicators and to identify trends and areas for further research.
