Index on Censorship

Index on Censorship is an international organisation that promotes and defends the right to free expression. The inspiration of poet Stephen Spender, Index was founded to publish the untold stories of dissidents behind the Iron Curtain. Today, we provide a platform for censored writers and artists around the world through an award-winning magazine and website, and fight for free speech by challenging censorship whenever and wherever it occurs.


From betting to minimum pricing: saving the poor from themselves?

"Some of the freest speech I have enjoyed in years."
Baroness Ruth Deech QC, crossbench peer; chairman, Bar Standards Board
