Press Release, 29 May 2015
The Fritt Ord Foundation has decided to support the further development of the project "Status of freedom of expression in Norway
" for a new period from 2015 to 2017 – this time focusing on the topic "Public boundaries". The project will be headed by the Institute for Social Research in collaboration with Department of Media and Communication at the University of Oslo.
Under the auspices of the new project, researchers will delve more deeply into the processes by which boundaries are drawn for what can and cannot be said in the public space in Norway. The project will study selected debates in more detail, examining which players participate in and regulate them, as well as which arguments are included and excluded.
