Through the eyes of the human rights organizations Amnesty International and Human Rights Watch I have deepened in the Libyan freedom of expression, freedom of press and freedom of association during the years 2009-2012.

My question formulation is the following: How has the libyan people’s right to freedom of expression, freedom of press and freedom of association evolved during the last years according to Amnesty International and Human Rights Watch? (Less)
