Latest issue

The winter 2017 Index on Censorship magazine explores 1968 - the year the world took to the streets - to discover whether our rights to protest are endangered today.

Micah White proposes a novel way for protest to remain relevant. Author and journalist Robert McCrum revisits the Prague Spring to ask whether it is still remembered. Award-winning author Ariel Dorfman's new short story -- Shakespeare, Cervantes and spies -- has it all. Anuradha Roy writes that tired of being harassed and treated as second class citizens, Indian women are taking to the streets.
