Freedom of Expression, Assembly and Associationby Commonwealth Secretariat
Synopses & Reviews
Freedom of expression, assembly and association are part of the constituent elements necessary for the establishment of democratic societies. They encompass the essential rights inherent in a democracy to establish and participate in political parties, trade unions and non-governmental organisations as well as freedom of the media. The right to demonstrate and protest forms an essential part of these rights. This publication considers factors which hinder the enjoyment of these rights and posits guidelines to overcome these hindrances. It examines the fundamental human rights of freedom of expression, assembly and association as set out in the international and regional instruments. In doing so, it examines such limitations of these rights which are necessary in a democratic society to ensure other fundamental rights are not infringed. An expert group was drawn up from across the Commonwealth to determine the standards applicable and how to effect them.
This title examines the fundamental human rights of freedom of expression, assembly and freedom of association as set out in the international and regional human rights instruments. The right to demonstrate and protest forms part of the rights of assembly and association and is part of the democratic landscape of countries. An expert group sets out best practice and guidelines to ensure that these rights are protected while at the same time achieving a balance to ensure that other fundamental rights are not infringed. This book is particularly pertinent in the light of ongoing 'anti-globalization' protests.
