A brief about the book: The book reviews freedom of opinion and expression in international treaties of human rights on the one hand, and restrictions set by these treaties on the other hand. The book also reviews freedom of opinion and expression in the Arab Charter of Human Rights as an example of what has been achieved by the official Arab institution in the field of Human Rights and in particular freedom of opinion and expression.
The book also addresses the subjects of democracy and the sovereignty of the state and the different visions and theories around it according to the different concepts of democracy on the one hand, and sovereignty of state on the other hand. The author also reviews the various theories in this area, which varied based on the political, economic, and historical background of the political theorists in this area.
Moreover the book tried to highlight the problematic relationship between sovereignty and globalisation through freedom of opinion and freedom of expression; taking the Arab World as a case study and reviewing the problems faced when copying the western experiences to Arab Countries and the possibilities of success and failure.
