Press Freedom

In many countries across the globe, freedom of the press and freedom of expression are celebrated as fundamental human rights. But following the most deadly year for journalists to date, governments  and society at large  must acknowledge how these rights are being chipped away, and what their responsibilities are to uphold the civil liberties of those who report the news.

The Dart Center is involved in a variety of press freedom-related activities, including helping to spearhead the Global Safety Principles and Practices campaign on behalf of freelance journalists, supporting news organizations in developing countries, implementing initiatives to address psychological safety and spotlighting the cases of individual journalists targeted with violence.
