Description
Press Freedom / Hate Media

Promoting independent media is often vital to helping societies heal from conflict or recover from totalitarian rule. UNESCO – the UN agency for education, science and culture – is involved in a number of such projects across the globe, some of which include training reporters in journalistic standards and best practices. But how are such standards arrived at, and how can they be applied? Are the current journalistic practices of the media in industrialized countries necessarily a good example? And can press freedom be preserved even while combating “hate media”? In this edition of World Chronicle, these questions are discussed with Abdul Waheed Khan, UNESCO’s Assistant Director-General for Communications and Information.
