Seminar and Inter-Regional Dialogue on Protection of Journalists

Towards an effective framework of protection for the work of journalists and an end to impunity

09 September 2014

According to organisers, "the Seminar will provide a forum for an intensified inter-regional dialogue among representatives of regional human rights courts and inter-governmental organisations in Europe, the Americas and Africa, together with other experts, to examine the progress of each of the multilateral systems as well as significant gaps in protection. It will also explore ways of advancing the adoption of best practices in regional and national jurisdictions, with the goal of developing a consistent framework of protection globally."

"The organisation of the Seminar and the proposal for an intensified inter-regional dialogue reflect the commitment of non-governmental and civil society organisations to a genuinely effective legal framework of protections, as well as the will of UN member states as expressed in Resolutions of UN bodies and in the UN Action Plan," they add.
