With financial support from the Swedish International Development Cooperation Agency (Sida), UNESCO is implementing a project strengthening freedom of expression and democracy in countries spread across the Middle East, Latin America, Africa and Asia.
The forthcoming study World Trends in Freedom of Expression and Media Development, produced with support from the Swedish International Development Cooperation Agency (SIDA), looks at developments in media freedom, independence, pluralism and safety.
Awarded annually on World Press Freedom Day, the Prize honours a person, organization or institution that has made an outstanding contribution to the defence and/or promotion of press freedom anywhere in the world, especially when this has been achieved in the face of danger. It is supported by the Guillermo Cano Isaza Foundation and the Helsingin Foundation.
