The COVID-19 pandemic threatens more than our health, but also our freedoms.
Threats to press freedom are cropping up all over the world, taking the form of physical and political attacks on journalists, the criminalization of journalists’ work, restrictions on free access to information and increased surveillance.
ICFJ global director of research, Dr. Julie Posetti interviews Prof. David Kaye, UN special rapporteur on the promotion and protection of the right to freedom of opinion and expression, and Dr. Courtney Radsch, advocacy director at the Committee to Protect Journalists.
This episode is part of the ICFJ and IJNet Global Health Crisis Reporting Forum.
