Article 10 of the European Convention on Human Rights
Freedom of expression is a fundamental right that is precious to everyone and essential to any democratic society.
It is guaranteed by Article 10 of the European Convention on Human Rights (ECHR). In addition to the ECHR, the Council of Europe has drawn up a set of standards covering different aspects of the right to freedom of expression such as freedom of the media, access to information, the fight against discourse hate, internet freedom.
An online platform has also been created to strengthen the protection of journalism and the safety of journalists.

He raised the question of the balance to be struck, so that this right does not conflict with other rights such as the protection of privacy or the prohibition of discrimination. The European Court of Human Rights, through its abundant case law in this area, has endeavored to define the limits of freedom of expression online while ensuring that a balance is maintained between the various rights protected by the Convention.
