Freedom of expression in Norway – attitudes and experiences among members of the general public

 image

The researchers engaged in the project "Status of freedom of expression in Norway – the Fritt Ord Foundation's monitoring project" have surveyed the Norwegian people's experience of freedom of expression, and the results will be presented today.

In autumn 2013 and spring 2014, the project carried out several surveys about Norwegian people's attitudes to and experience of freedom of expression, including both ethnic majority and minority populations. Journalists, writers and visual artists were asked for their opinions about the conditions for freedom of expression. The report "Freedom of expression in Norway: Attitudes and experiences of the general public" presents the results of these surveys.

Read the feature article "Freedom of expression – but not at work" (in Norwegian, based on the main findings from the survey).

Report launch: The status of freedom of expression in Norway - results of the demographic survey

 image

What is the status of freedom of expression as seen from the general public's point of view? Is freedom of expression perceived as an important value in comparison with other considerations? What experiences do the general public have of freedom of expression – in the public space and at the workplace? How do we see the media's role as infrastructure for freedom of expression?

The project "The status of freedom of expression in Norway – the Fritt Ord Foundation's monitoring project" examines attitudes to and experiences of freedom of expression in Norway in different demographic groups and arenas.

In winter 2013, the project conducted two surveys about attitudes to and experience of freedom of expression in the majority population and among non-western immigrants and descendants.

On 3 September, a seminar will be organised at the Fritt Ord Foundation premises on Uranienborgveien in Oslo.

Some of the findings from the surveys will be presented, and there will be an opportunity to ask the researchers questions.
