This book offers an exploration of the collision of freedom of press and human rights. The authors examine the scope of freedom of press in Colombia, asking what law should prevail when freedom of information is faced by needs for confidentiality. This difficult question concerns citizens, journalists and politicians alike as it calls attention to the importance of freedom of information in a democracy. By systematically reviewing over 100 major decisions made by the High Colombian Court since the enactment of the Constitution in 1991, this book (and accompanying compact disc) seeks to contribute to the process addressing this complex issue.
