Amplifying Voices: Information and Expression

  • Date
  • September 2013

In a variety of ways, information and expression remain constrained despite the expansion of the information highway. In some cases, there is heavy-handed silencing by governments through repressive laws and actions; in others, the media self-censors itself on certain sensitive or volatile issues. Persons with sensory disabilities have to function in a world with a dearth of sign language, Braille, and interpretation services to accommodate them to function fully in society.  

This issue of Amplifying Voices, a publication of the Open Society Initiative for Eastern Africa, discusses the provision of information through accessible formats so that people can engage and make informed judgments on issues that have a bearing on their lives.
