Webinar: An unfree media?

7:00 pm - 8:00 pm UTC

The John Schofield Trust is conducting this online event – Jodie Ginsberg, Chief Executive of Internews Europe, will be presenting.

We may take it for granted that a free press is fundamental to a democratic society and that the media is essential for the protection of human rights. But this crucial tenet is constantly being challenged. Political input, legal parameters, regulation, diminished resources, limited ownership and social restrictions are all key factors in curbing a robust media both in the UK and abroad. With so many challenges, what can journalists and news teams do to protect accountability, transparency and free speech? And why does media freedom matter?
