Session Overview
Virtual Visit - Free Press Unlimited: People Deserve to Know - All Over the World
Wednesday, 07/July/2021:
3:30pm - 4:30pm

Session Abstract

Around the world, journalists face an increasing level of repression, violence and intimidation. Governments intimidate and censor dissenting voices, also in the digital space. Criminal gangs threaten those who report on corruption. The result is that journalists exercise self-censorship, leave the profession, disappear into exile or stay silent. Free Press Unlimited (FPU) supports local media professionals and journalists, particularly in countries with limited (press) freedom. The visit to Free Press Unlimited will discuss recent activities and campaigns that contribute to a sustainable, professional and diverse media landscape.

Free Press Unlimited: 


Leon Willems - Director FPU

Jantine van Herwijnen - FPU Emergency Fund

Evelien Wijkstra - Policy and Advocacy
