Regional Paper

The legislative development regarding freedom of expression in Argentina, in the last twenty years, can be considered positive. Notwithstanding this, there are several pending reforms to continue moving in the right direction on the traditional freedom of expression agenda and the impact that Internet regulation can have on this important matter is high. There are several laws that were adopted from 2005 onwards aimed at regulating Internet activities, many of which affect the circulation of content and expression. In addition, many of the bills reviewed in recent years suggest that, in many cases, Internet regulation is being thought of disconnected from the freedom of expression agenda: projects that impose some kind of obligation for intermediaries have multiplied. on the Internet and the criminalizing desire persists in an important part of Argentine society and its representatives. This article relieves and highlights the parliamentary activity regarding freedom of expression and circulation of discourse, both online and offline. It concludes with a series of recommendations for the different actors involved in the debate, in order to achieve a renewed agenda on this matter for the future and to promote legislation that respects the right to freedom of expression.
