Latest issue:

The 250th issue of award-winning Index on Censorship magazine explores how journalism has become increasingly risky in its special report Truth in Danger, Danger in Truth: Journalists Under Fire and Under Pressure. Lindsey Hilsum, writing about her friend and colleague, the murdered war reporter Marie Colvin, explores whether journalists should still be covering war zones. Stephen Grey looks at the difficulties of protecting sources in an era of mass surveillance. Valeria Costa-Kostritsky shows how Europe's journalists are being silenced by accusations that their work threatens national security. And there are features on what it is really like to be a local reporter in Syria and Eritrea.

Also in this issue: The late Swedish crime writer Henning Mankell explores colonialism in Africa in an exclusive play extract; Jemimah Steinfeld interviews China's most famous political cartoonist; Irene Caselli writes about the controversies and censorship of Latin America's soap operas; and Norwegian musician Moddi tells how hate mail sparked an album of music that had been silenced.
