4th annual conference on the Safety of Journalists – the chilling effects

The conference will take place in Oslo on the 5th and 6th of November 2018 in connection with UNESCO’s International Day to End Impunity for Crimes against Journalists.

Most abuses against media professionals remain uninvestigated and unpunished. This impunity perpetuates the cycle of violence against journalists, media workers and citizen journalists. The resulting self-censorship deprives society of information and further impacts press freedom. (UNESCO, Safety of Journalists and Impunity)

How can you talk about self-censorship? How can you know that self-censorship exists? What can make journalists better equipped to secure themselves without having to tie themselves up and jeopardize freedom of speech? What role do state authorities or journalist associations play here?
