William H. Dutton, Anna Dopatka, Michael Hills, Ginette Law, Victoria Nash, UNESCO, May 27, 2011
Commentary by Stephen Downes

This new publication from UNESCO "explores the complex situation of freedom of expression on the Internet and provides a new perspective on the social and political dynamics behind the threats to expression." The book in intended to guide policymakers by developing a new framework of measures that support free expression in a digital environment. Here's the direct link to the PDF, which is a bit obscure on the announcement page. Note that though it is only 105 pages long, it took quite a while to download. It's worth the wait. Well-researched and thorough, the document is an excellent introduction to the subject and would make a welcome addition to any internet and law reading list.
