Blueprint for Free Speech

Blueprint for Free Speech is an international NGO based in Australia and Germany that specialises in a range of freedom of expression issues, including whistleblower protection, the right to publish, government transparency, data privacy and internet freedom. Our research and advocacy projects strive to defend Article 19 of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights, which asserts the right to freedom of opinion and expression for all people.

We undertake research that will:

  • Encourage more informed decision-making and improve the quality of public debate in this area

  • Provide research tools to support other charities and NGOs, as well as individuals, in their work to improve society in this area

  • Remove barriers that may chill freedom of expression, including seeking to reduce corruption and serious wrongdoing

Our library of research materials is free for everyone to use. We ask that you please reference Blueprint’s website when you use our material so that others who are looking for this sort of research can find it easily for their use as well.
