FXI research contributes towards the building of a body of knowledge that raises broad public awareness on the right to freedom of expression. The capacity to lobby effectively is backed up by quality research. Past research work has been critical towards informing the Institute’s advocacy and legal interventions. Current research produces information that is accessible to all sectors of the public, including academic research papers and popular education material.
The focus of the research includes: self-initiated research projects, commissioned research projects, policy interventions, policy support for civil society and publications. The FXI has assisted in developing the legal and policy provisions enabling the exercise of free expression by making key submissions to government and other statutory bodies.
