Global Conference on Improving the Protection, Security, Integration and Mental Health of Refugee Journalists

UNESCO and the International Federation of Journalists cordially invite you to participate in the Global Conference on Improving the Protection, Security, Integration and Mental Health of Refugee Journalists which is scheduled for Friday 5th November from 8:30am -11:30am (Costa Rica time.)

The start time may differ depending on the time zone in which you are located.

The event will generate debates and recommendations concerning improving the welfare of refugee journalists who were forced to flee their homes and countries due to high levels of impunity, insecurity, physical and digital attacks, aggressions and other complex challenges.

The international event which will be transmitted live in Spanish and English is being organized to commemorate the International Day to End Impunity for Crimes against Journalists. The event is supported by international and national partners including the United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees (UNHCR), the Committee for the Protection of Journalists (CPJ), the International Federation of Journalists (IFJ), the Refugee Journalism Project, the Dart Centre for Journalism and Trauma, and the Press and Freedom of Expression Institute (IPLEX).
