Status for ytringsfriheten i Norge – Fritt Ords monitorprosjekt

The project "Status of freedom of expression in Norway – the Fritt Ord Foundation's Monitor Project", is being headed by the Institute for Social Research on commission for the Fritt Ord Foundation and it will run until the end of 2014. The partners are the Department of Media and Communication (IMK) at the University of Oslo, Fafo, TNS Gallup and lawyer Jon Wessel-Aas. The project tracks the conditions for freedom of expression, and will focus on four major processes of change: Globalisation and multi-culturalism, digitisation and a different media reality, monitoring and control, and managerialism.

Norwegian Journal of Photography

The Norwegian Journal of Photography was established in 2011 to serve as an arena where independent photographers who work in the interface between traditional press photography on the one hand and art photography on the other will be able to present the full scope of their projects. NJP brings together and supports selected Norwegian photographic documentary projects, and the first edition of the book was launched in February 2013.
