Protecting the safety of journalists. Evenings with Radio Free Europe


Press freedom and independent media are increasingly under pressure. Currently, according to Reporters Without Borders, almost 500 journalists are behind bars for simply doing their jobs and journalists around the world work under constant threat to their personal safety and often to the safety of their families too. Free media are a cornerstone of fair and democratic societies. Independent journalism serves as an indicator of democracy and enables citizens to make informed decisions about their lives. Join the Václav Havel Library and Radio Free Europe / Radio Liberty for a discussion on the safety of journalists at a time when a record number of journalists are imprisoned and facing increasing physical and online harassment.

Speakers include:
* Stephen Capus, President and CEO, Radio Free Europe / Radio Liberty
* Lída Vacková, Program Manager, Freedom House
* Martin Řezníček, Deputy Editor-In-Chief of News, Czech Television

Moderator: Gabriela Svárovská, Expert on Human Rights and International Politics
