An essential foundation of a democratic and pluralistic society is the freedom of expression. It allows individuals to express their personality in society and gives the public the opportunity to form opinions by establishing and maintaining reliable and impartial information.

This article presents three recent decisions, namely by the European Court of Human Rights, the Court of Justice of European Union and the Slovenian Constitutional Court dealing with the right of expression.
