International and Comparative Perspectives on CommunicationLaw

The First Amendment’s protections ofspeech and press have often placedthe United States at the forefront ofcommunicationlaw given its exceptional position. However, our communication landscape has increasingly become one that knows no geographic boundaries.Communicationlaw scholarship that reflects this international perspective has become more influential as law and policy decisions begin to have greater global impact. The shockwaves from the European Union’s recent implementation of its General Data Protection Regulation were felt worldwide as media companies and international corporations frantically prepared to comply. Elsewhere in the world, campaigns to decriminalize defamation gained strength and found success in countries such as Lesotho. Yet, international attempts to quell “fake news” and other rampant forms of misinformationcontinue tothreaten freedom of expression.
