Our work is framed on the basis of international principles of freedom of expression and information, including: the Universal Declaration of Human Rights; the American Convention on Human Rights; the International Covenant on Civil and Political Rights; Declaration of Principles on Freedom of Expression-promoted by the Special Rapporteur for Freedom of Expression of the Organization of American States; among others.

Nationally, we argue about the provisions on freedom of expression and right to information referred to in the Constitution of the Bolivarian Republic of Venezuela and other instruments of Venezuelan law.
