International Day to End Impunity for Crimes Committed Against Journalists

The United Nations has declared 2 November as the International Day to End Impunity for Crimes against Journalists (IDEI), in recognition of the far-reaching consequences of impunity, especially of crimes against journalists. IDEI provides a strategic opportunity to all stakeholders to focus public attention on the importance of ending impunity for crimes against journalists.
The United Nations General Assembly adopted Resolution A/RES/68/163 at its 68th session in 2013 which proclaimed 2 November as the ‘International Day to End Impunity for Crimes against Journalists’ (IDEI). The Resolution urged Member States to implement definite measures countering the present culture of impunity. The date was chosen in commemoration of the assassination of two French journalists in Mali on 2 November 2013.
