If you have a question about this talk, please contact Sharath Srinivasan.

Why are journalists finding it even more difficult to perform their job in the modern age of information dissemination? In what ways are they repressed or targeted in their work? What is the role of the state in impunity for the perpetrators of violence against journalists? And how can we stop this?

These questions will be discussed in a public event organised by Cambridge’s Centre of Governance and Human Rights (CGHR) with an expert panel:

  • Christof Heyns, United Nations Special Rapporteur on extrajudicial, summary or arbitrary executions
  • Pansy Tlakula, Special Rapporteur on Freedom of Expression and Access to Information, African Commission on Human and People’s Rights
  • Frank La Rue, United Nations Special Rapporteur on the promotion and protection of the right to freedom of opinion and expression
  • Joel Simon, Executive Director, Committee to Protect Journalists.
  • Celia Davies, former Cambridge graduate and Program Development Manager at Institute for Reporters’ Freedom and Safety, Azerbaijan

Moderator: William Horsely, former BBC correspondent, UK Chairman, Association of European Journalists

Chair: Sharath Srinivasan, Director, Centre of Governance and Human Rights

Testimonies from the field will be combined with discussion, debate and a presentation by Christof Heyns on recent research conducted by Cambridge’s CGHR for the Special Rapporteur, and its role in his next report to the Human Rights Council on the Safety of Journalists.

This talk is part of the Centre of Governance and Human Rights Events series.
