The Report of the Special Rapporteur on the promotion and promotion and protection of the freedom of opinion and expression was given to the Human Rights Council at the UN General Assembly on 15 June – 3 July 2020.
The report starts with an explanation of the legal framework applicable to artistic freedom of expression and then addresses the ways in which States and other actors often fail in their obligations or responsibilities in this field. A main result is, that states are restricting repressions increasingly in the form of art. For online content filtering mechanisms, private companies should also adopt the UN Guiding Principles on Business and Human Rights.
The report is available at the HRC site (in English only)
