Since 1992, over 1,500 journalists and people working in the media have been killed while doing their work. Most of these cases remain unresolved.

“A free and independent press plays a critical role in promoting democracy and shining a light on developments around the world – whether daunting or hopeful,” said Ned Price on International Day to End Impunity for Crimes against Journalists.

“Increasingly, journalists face threats and attacks online, where identifying and holding to account the perpetrator can be difficult. Women journalists are disproportionately targeted by online harassment and abuse, which compounds the forms of violence they experience offline,” Price added. 

Ten years ago, the UN Plan of Action on the Safety of Journalists was established to create a secure and just environment for media. Protecting journalists is also part of the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development

“Despite these efforts, the international community must continue to take a stand against physical attacks, intimidation lawsuits, transnational repression, and regulatory pressures that silence media—online and offline,” said Price. “We call on other governments to join us in condemning crimes against journalists and holding accountable those who attack press freedom.”
