World Press Freedom Day: Protection of Journalists
The number of journalists murdered in retaliation for their work more than doubled in 2020. The number of journalists jailed globally because of their work hit a new high last year as governments cracked down on coverage of COVID-19 or tried to suppress reporting on political unrest. Threats to journalists’ safety are a threat to the public’s right to know and undermine democracy. News Decoder is holding a global round table on the importance of protecting journalists as part of the United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization (UNESCO) World Press Freedom Day Celebrations. Open to the public, the webinar honoring World Press Freedom Day will feature two guest experts with extensive experience in defending the right of journalists to report the news safely: Robert Mahoney, Deputy Executive Director of the Committee to Protect Journalists, and Elaine Monaghan, Professor of Practice at Indiana University’s Media School. Students from News Decoder’s partner schools will participate on camera in the webinar, which will be promoted by UNESCO as part of its activities celebrating the 30th anniversary of the UN Windhoek Declaration upholding press freedom.
