Freedom of expression and access to information are fundamental rights enshrined in the Universal Declaration of Human Rights. Together with the safety of journalists, these rights are promoted in SDG 16 of the 2030 Agenda and are critical to fostering peaceful and inclusive societies.
Co-organized by the Multilateral Dialogue Konrad-Adenauer-Stiftung Geneva and UPR Info, the side event “The Role of Media in the Human Rights Council” will enable a dialogue between practitioners, experts, civil society, and states on lessons learned and the way forward when it comes to the engagement of media professionals with the HRC and its mechanisms, including the Universal Periodic Review.
