The Third Global Conference for Media Freedom will be hosted in Tallinn from February 9 to February 10, 2022, by the Estonian Ministry of Foreign Affairs in cooperation with the Estonian Institute of Human Rights. The conference will provide a long-sought forum for in-person meetings and discussions to strengthen joint efforts in defending media freedom and human rights worldwide. The hybrid format will also allow participants to join in virtually, from all over the world. The conference will combine traditional and innovative media freedom topics focusing on Disinformation and Freedom of Speech, Protection of Journalists and interlinkages between Media Freedom and Internet Freedom.
Mira Milosevic (GFMD), Nick Benequista (CIMA) and Justin Williams (UK FCDO) will conclude the discussion by proposing the next steps. For more details about this meeting see our briefing paper here.
To inform the process of collaboratively developing renewed principles for effective media development and support journalism, GFMD has launched a survey to gather perspectives from across the field. Please answer the survey on effective media support here.
As with previous GFMD IMPACT meetings these sessions will bring together media support donors, practitioners and academics to discuss for an open discussion to further understanding and knowledge sharing. For more information about GFMD IMPACT, visit our website.
