The United Nations Education, Scientific, and Cultural Organization (UNESCO) organizes World Press Freedom Day commemorations to celebrate the fundamental principles of press freedom; to evaluate press freedom; to defend the media from attacks on their independence and to pay tribute to journalists who have lost their lives in the line of duty.

In the last few weeks, IJNet has highlighted several of the fascinating panelists who will participate in World Press Freedom Day global conference in Washington May 1 - 3. During the event, IJNet will be there to cover the action and bring you voices of participants from around the world.
