Taking place on the International Day to End Impunity for Crimes Against Journalists, UNESCO; along with Centre for the Freedom of the Media (CFOM) – Sheffield University; PEN International; and Article 19 will host journalists, international lawyers, human rights figures and policymakers to share their understanding of the acute situation regarding the issue of impunity for crimes against journalists, as well as potential responses from each of the actors involved.
The event will involve two panels, one including first-hand accounts of violence and impunity as well as reflections on the causes of impunity in conflict and non-conflict areas/situations and a second focusing on representative cases, shortcomings in state responses, justice systems and political accountability, as well as suggested courses of action to combat and end impunity.
