International Day to End Impunity for Crimes Against Journalists

The General Assembly at its 68th Session decided to proclaim 2 November as the International Day to End Impunity for Crimes against Journalists and also requested the United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization, in consultation with relevant entities of the United Nations system, and mindful of the provisions of the annex to Economic and Social Council resolution 1980/67 of 25 July 1980, to facilitate the implementation of the International Day in collaboration with Governments and relevant stakeholders.
This is also complementary to the the United Nations Plan of Action on the Safety of Journalists and the Issue of Impunity, endorsed by the United Nations System Chief Executives
Board for Coordination on 12 April 2012, in which United Nations agencies, funds and programmes were invited to work with Member States towards a free and safe environment for journalists and media workers in both conflict and non-conflict
situations, with a view to strengthening peace, democracy and development worldwide.
