A panel discussion to discuss what action has been taken, and what further needs to be done by States to open their doors to journalists who are risking their lives to keep us informed.

Fleeing one's home country whilst a threat exists is all too often the only way in which a journalist can avoid politically motivated incarceration, violence, or sometimes even death. A total of 67 journalists were killed in 2022; the percentage of journalists killed in countries not experiencing armed conflict has been increasing since 2016. The number of journalists imprisoned for their work has reached an all-time high.

A panel discussion organized by the Government of Estonia, the High Level Panel of Legal Experts on Media Freedom and The Committee to Protect Journalists.
