Fake News: A new challenge to human rights?

12 May 2021 – This report warns that fake news poses a threat to free societies, distorting perceptions of what is true and false, and potentially corroding social and political interactions, not least because combating it can introduce a raft of dangers.

FreeFacts - March 2021

FreeFACTS - February 2021

9 March 2021 - This edition of FreeFACTS looks at the matric results for 2020 as well as a number of historical trends. Flagged are the very small number of people who pass key subjects such as Mathematics with high marks and the low rate of educational throughput.

FreeFACTS - January 2021

23 January 2021 - The first FreeFACTS of the 2021 looks at the quality of life of South Africans. Using a measure determined by the Centre for Risk Analysis it shows that there are (sometimes significant) regional and racial cleavages in the quality of life experienced by South Africans, partly because of our history, and partly because of the growth-destroying policies which the government has followed over the past ten years.

FreeFACTS - December 2020

28 January 2021 - This edition of FreeFACTS looks at South Africa’s rankings of various index which attempt to measure how free we are.

FreeFACTS - November 2020

3 December 2020 - This edition of FreeFACTS looks at how South Africans receive information, with a focus on radio and television penetration. In the wake of the collapsing SABC the report shows the vast majority of South Africans still receive their information on one of these two mediums.
