The IACHR provides a regional overview of DTT and freedom of expression

“The report addresses the necessary regulatory conditions so that the increased radio-electronic spectrum that results from digitization provides an opportunity to promote pluralism and diversity in open broadcast television.”

On the 8 of May, the Special Rapporteur on Freedom of Expression of the Inter-American Commission on Human Rights, issued the organization’s Hemispheric Report on the situation of freedom of expression in the Americas.

On this occasion, chapter III is the most relevant given that it deals with the standards of freedom of expression for the transition to digital terrestrial television that are also diverse, pluralistic and inclusive. These principles have been issued at a key moment for Latin America, in which most countries are defining their own standards and policies for digital terrestrial television, and in which the task of governments should be to ensure that such directives support the aim of guaranteeing the exercise of freedom of expression.

While the Joint Declaration on Protection of Freedom of Expression and Diversity in the Transition to Digital Terrestrial Television of the Rapporteurs of the UN, OAS, OSC and ACHPR, on the 5 April 2013, established the first steps that should be taken by the respective States, the recent report of the Special Rapporteur of the IACHR more accurately addresses the necessary regulatory conditions so that the increased radio-electronic spectrum caused by digitization provides an opportunity to promote pluralism and diversity in open broadcast television. This would thus strengthen the right to freedom of expression and therefore the quality of democracy in the countries of the region.
