“CLINICA JURIDICA VIRTUAL”

La idea nació con el objetivo de responder de manera eficaz a cuestiones que cotidianamente entran en conflicto con el ejercicio de la libertad de expresión y que van desde aspectos constitucionales hasta derivaciones éticas de este derecho esencial. “Hemos querido con la Clínica Jurídica Virtual, cubrir un vacío sobre el tema en México y América Latina y al mismo tiempo crear entre personas e instituciones un vinculo constante que permita ensanchar el sentido y la valoración de la libertad de expresión”- afirmó Benjamín Fernández Bogado.

Finally in South Africa!

Editors Note: Fellow Mia Malan returns to South Africa.

I’ve been back in Johannesburg for a month now – after an absence of six years in Kenya and the US. So I’m seeing my country through a new set of eyes - mostly because I’ve got more to compare it to than before I left. Many people are negative, which I can understand to some extent – dealing with a constant climate of crime and corruption can be exhausting. But mostly, I see positive changes in South Africa - at least so far.

Journalism in Bolivia

Greetings from Santa Cruz, Bolivia! The carnival is over and routine has come back to the capital of the eastern part of the country. Santa Cruz was paralised for one week, with thousands of people in the street drinking, throwing water and painting the walls, dancing with loud music... It was really crazy.Today starts a very interesting workshop organised by the ABOCCS, the association that integrates the main university graduates in communication, in Santa Cruz.

ES POSIBLE DERROTAR LA CORRUPCION

There is a sense of failure among Latin American people on fighting corruption. This article was published in the January magazine "Transparencia y corrupcion" in Mexico City and points out the idea that using freedom of expression as a tool could be successful.

Uno de los muchos sinónimos de la corrupción es el concepto de “echar a perder”, expresión que delata algo construido en común o una idea que no pudo concretarse para beneficio colectivo.

LA LIBERTAD DE EXPRESION SOLO ES JUSTIFICADA EN EL OTRO

Articulo publicado en diarios mexicanos en el dia de la declaración universal de los DDHH el pasado 10 de diciembre.

LIBERTAD DE EXPRESION Y VIOLENCIA

Los pueblos se construyen a través de las palabras. Ellas crean el imaginario de lo posible y lo imposible. Ellas determinan la distancia que separa la utopía de la realidad, la misma que la construimos no solo por lo que decimos sino también por lo que toleramos que digan los demás.
