About the topic

In the years after the 9/11 attacks, Western governments engaged in successive waves of counter terrorism policy making. Although much has been made of the effects of these policies on human rights generally, far less attention has been paid to their effects on freedom of speech. This presentation outlines the findings of a large research project examining a shift in understandings of the appropriate parameters of free speech that has been undertaken after 9/11 in the United States, the United Kingdom and Australia. The shift has occurred both through policy change, and through the discursive justifications for that change. Importantly, this shift demonstrates remarkable substantive similarity across the three countries, in spite of significant differences in their pre 9/11 institutions of free speech. These differences have affected the form, but not the substance, of the changes ushered in.
