“There has been some loss in the international consensus on what human rights are.” “In five years we have seen an explosion of the repression of free speech.” The two sentences are by Carles Torner, until recently executive director of the International PEN Club, and correspond to the interview opened by the Culture section. Torner can provide the world overview that gives him the position he has held for seven years, especially on freedom of expression and the serious problems that many writers have. But not only. He has encountered a widespread outburst that pushes back fundamental rights, and the zero moment of which he places in Donald Trump’s 2016 electoral victory.
