Freedom of the press around the world is in grave danger. With threats of violence against journalists continuing to rise, safeguarding press freedom has never been more critical to the health of democratic and informed societies and the people who live in them. According to Reporters Without Borders (RSF), a total of 348 journalists were detained for providing news and information in 2018.
On April 18, The Washington Post and Reporters Without Borders, the world’s largest non-governmental organization specializing in the defense of media freedom, held a conversation on freedom of the press around the world.
