Abstract:
Freedom of expression historically has been regarded as a domestic concern. But modern communication technologies and the unprecedented forces of globalization are blurring the distinction between what is national and what is international, creating an interconnected world that is not bound by traditional borders. International investment treaties, as well as trade agreements, can be used to to protect media from efforts to suppress it.
