WAN-IFRA LAUNCHES SECOND SEASON OF MEDIA FREEDOM PODCAST

The World Association of Newspapers and News Publishers (WAN-IFRA) has recently launched the second season of its podcast The Backstory: A Media Freedom Podcast. The second season will be entirely devoted to examining in-depth the  many facets of the conversation around the safety of journalists. The Backstory attempts to raise some of the fundamental aspects of the safety conversation to its global listeners.

CALL FOR EU ACTION TO PROTECT JOURNALISTS

The call is directed at the European Commission suggesting that in addition to condemning the recent killings of Slovak journalist Ján Kuciak and Daphne Caruana Galizia and calling upon authorities to address them on the national level the Commission should come up with better ways to protect journalists and journalism on the EU level.
