Study : What freedom of publishing for independent publishers ?

Call for proposal – looking for an author

The Alliance aims to produce an unprecedented study about freedom of publishing, listening to the independent publishers about the following questions :

  • What are the different infringements of freedom of publishing for independent publishers, in their countries ?
  • How do they face these threats in their daily professional life ?
  • How do the publishers resist, preserve and defend their freedom of publishing ? How do they circumvent censorship ?
  • Can we consider that publishing is riskier today than it used to be ? Can we point out some significant changes ?
  • From the point of view of the publishers, is there a limit to freedom of publishing (and freedom of expression) ?

The study will be written in French. If you are interested in making this study, please send your proposal to the Alliance team before 13 March 2017.
