Freedom of Expression

Icelandic State
Describe the main features of the policy/measure: 

In Iceland, the freedom of expression is a constitutional right guaranteed, along with other human rights, by the Icelandic Constitution. The general public, including artists and the press, is thereby guaranteed the freedom to their opinions and convictions, as well as the right to express those. The freedom of expressions is an incredibly important right for both individuals and society as a whole, providing individuals with the ability to freely express themselves. This has a direct impact on society as a whole, providing a legislative foundation upon which laws, regulations and policies are built. It should be noted that the freedom of expression does not protect individuals' rights to hate speech and other forms of discrimination.
