Regional consultation among stakeholders to reach agreement on the best framework to be established to protect journalists and free expression
The regional consultation among stakeholders including journalists, human rights defenders, security and judicial institutions is being organized to reach agreement on the best framework to be established to protect journalists and free expression.
One of the key objectives of the project (Increasing the Safety of Journalists) is to establish a nationally owned mechanism for coordinating and addressing threats to free expression, including the safety of individuals and groups who are targeted for their speech and expressions. The mechanism is to be established in line to the ‘UN Action Plan on the Safety of Journalists and the Issue of Impunity’ and aligns with the principles and guidelines that will be adopted for a multi-stakeholder participatory implementation.
