The project "Status of freedom of expression in Norway – the Fritt Ord Foundation's Monitor Project", is being headed by the Institute for Social Research
on commission for the Fritt Ord Foundation and it will run until the end of 2014. The partners are the Department of Media and Communication (IMK)
at the University of Oslo, Fafo
, TNS Gallup
and lawyer Jon Wessel-Aas. The project tracks the conditions for freedom of expression, and will focus on four major processes of change: Globalisation and multi-culturalism, digitisation and a different media reality, monitoring and control, and managerialism.
