Kosovo: Freedom of media is under attack

Kosovo: Freedom of media is under attack

The theme also aims to explore legislative gaps with regard to freedom of expression and online information, and the risks of regulating online speech. The index, published every year by Reporters without Borders, assesses the level of freedom available to journalists.

"We firmly believe that the only check on power, is holding truth to its functions; its motives; and to ensure that justice served is truly and rightfully delivered". "These costs include reducing access to a diversity of original journalism, promoting unreliable content and echo chambers, and intrusively collecting personal data; and for publishers, digital platforms are undermining our efforts to develop new advertising and subscription models and preventing us from competing on the merits", Miller said. Too often, they lose their security, their jobs, their freedom, wellbeing and even their lives in doing so.

"And it is through the commitment of hard working, fearless journalists, freely practicing the craft that the people can ask the hard questions to those in authority".

An individual, organisation or institution is honoured each year with the UNESCO/Guillermo Cano World Press Freedom Prize for contribution to the defence and/or promotion of press freedom anywhere in the world. It is vital for sustainable development. At least three journalists were murdered in connection with their work. Their service to the public is invaluable.

IFEX, a global human rights network of organisations defending the right to freedom of expression and information, said strengthening the watchdog role of independent journalism was necessary to expose electoral violations, gender-based inequalities, and human rights abuses. Crimes against journalists must be prosecuted.

The UN Special Rapporteur on Freedom of Expression, David Kaye, and rights experts from around the world have joined forces to highlight growing threats to media independence and diversity worldwide, particularly those affecting digital outlets.
