CPJ joins UN discussion on journalist safety and impunity

October 24, 2017 5:23 PM ET

The Committee to Protect Journalists and other rights groups, including Article 19, today took part in a side panel at the U.N. in New York, on journalist safety and impunity.

The panel highlighted findings from a United Nations Secretary General report, "The Safety of Journalists and the Issue of Impunity," to which CPJ contributed a statement, and CPJ Advocacy and Communications Manager Kerry Paterson discussed how sexual violence is used as a form of censorship, drawing from CPJ's 2011 report "The Silencing Crime."
