Threats to journalists and violations of media freedom are on the increase across Europe – from prosecution of journalists in Turkey, over attacks on media workers in Hungary, Poland and Ukraine, to accreditations withdrawn at the G20 summit in Germany.
The European Center for Press and Media Freedom is going to focus on this development on a conference on October 5, titled “Defending journalists under threat: solidarity, support and safe houses”. During the conference, the participants will explore practical solutions for tackling the many threats that media workers face today.
The conference language is English, and participation is free. SCOOP is a founding member of the ECPMF, and SCOOP coordinator Henrik Kaufholz is the ECPMF chairman.
