The role of the judiciary and international cooperation to promote the safety of journalists

For this conference, UNESCO and members of the Group of Friends on the Safety of Journalists will discuss effective ways to strengthen international cooperation, like special procedures, as well as the role of the judiciary - including judges, prosecutors and lawyers, and regional human rights courts and judicial training institutes- in promoting the safety of journalists and fighting impunity for crimes committed against them. While examining the gender dimension in each session, special emphasis will be placed on gender-based crimes and the particular challenges women journalists face when seeking justice.
