Join CPJ for a panel at the Brussels Press Club on emerging threats to journalists

Rising populism in the U.S. and Europe, amid concerns over terrorism and migration, pose risks to press freedom in the West and beyond. Join the Committee to Protect Journalists for a look at the challenges journalists face in the changing environment for media in the U.S. and Europe, and the potential ramifications for journalists operating in repressive countries around the world. Advanced registration is not necessary.
