This work gathers papers from an October 2015 conference held in Sweden at the University of Gothenburg, called oCommunicative Democracy: Protecting, Promoting, and Developing Free Speech in the Digital Era.o Contributors in anthropology, sociology, law, media studies, and communication provide new insights into the tensions between the state, the market, the media, and citizens, related to free speech. There is special emphasis on issue related to protecting free speech in the gray area that blends advertising and editorial content. Papers are grouped in sections on free speech and the state, advertising and journalism, and restrictions and control of media content. Cases from around the world deal with dilemmas surrounding areas such as regulation of hate speech, sexist advertising, and the use of televised political advertising.
