“Free Voices” #AswatHorra was launched as a unique UK Aid-funded project that, for the first time, brought together civil society, the media, the legal profession, and reform-minded officials to build resilience to threats to freedom of expression. Since 2019, six Libyan and four Lebanese organisations have been advocating for the rights of citizens, journalists, and human rights defenders, through projects supported by the Institute for War and Peace Reporting (IWPR) in consortium with Reporters without Borders (RSF), Media Defence, and Binda Consulting International (BCI).

This Publication outlines the priority challenges to freedom of expression in Libya and Lebanon and puts forth specific recommendations for addressing them. The policy prescriptions were developed to provide policymakers, elected representatives, election candidates, and the international community with insights into the FoE-related needs and priorities of Libyan and Lebanese citizens.
