Freedom of speech is best understood as freedom of expression since ideas and opinions can be expressed by conduct as well as by words. In fact, modern technology permits unique methods or ways of expression via the worldwide web with little means of regulating and limiting free speech and expression. Freedom of speech and expression are considered to be inalienable civil rights of all democratic systems. Be that as it may, even in the context of democratic freedoms, free speech and expression are subject to limitations calculated to minimize harm. As such, democratic nations recognizing and indorsing the right to free speech have set common law and statutory restraints on all civil liberties including free speech and expression. This study will divide into chapters; the first chapter examines the concept of freedom of speech in the lights of general principle of international law. The second chapters will discuss the role of the media in freedom of speech in general and Enforcement of Free Speech on an International Level
