This issue of the magazine includes a special report with articles from Russia, Poland, Germany and Hungary as well as analysis about the freedom and challenges to it achieved since the fall of the Berlin Wall. The optimistic future that many felt was just around the corner has not always been delivered. In Azerbaijan and Belarus, for instance, the population struggles with high levels of censorship. For some it may feel like the revolution didn’t really happen. In other countries there has been a rise in a nasty nationalism that stokes up hatred against minority groups. The debate about the future of journalism and free speech continues when we talk to Generation Wall, young people who were born just after the Wall fell about how they feel about freedom for their generation.
