Attacks on the press: Stamping out impunity

    Frontline Club will be marking World Press Freedom Day with a discussion on how to stamp out impunity (Wed 8 May at 7pm) with Peter Horrocks (BBC Global News), Heather Blake (Reporters Without Borders), Elisabeth Witchel (Committee to Protect Journalists), Aidan Sullivan (Getti Images). 

    Across the world everyday, journalists are targeted – whether online or in person – and face injuries, kidnappings and death. In the majority of cases the perpetrators are not brought to justice and this evading of punishment often leads to self censorship by other journalists.

     
    Reporting on corruption, crime, conflict, politics and human rights is crucial in society, but how can we better protect the journalists doing this work?

    Tickets: £12.50
