Insights from around the world

Pressure on freedom of speech and expression has been ramped up by rulers who want to silence critics - such as arbirary arrests in El Salvador and Iran, or the attempt at silencing critical journalists in Guatemala, to name just a few of our most recent topics.

We also shine a light on problems - and possible solutions - that are relevant to us all, such as preventing the next pandemic
