In January, the IFJ launched China’s Great Media Wall: The Fight For Freedom, the 8th annual China press freedom report.
The 2015 report is an annual analysis of press freedom and the ever increasing challenges and obstacles for journalists and media workers in China, Hong Kong and Macau.
It documents the broader issues impacting the work of local journalists and media workers across Mainland China, Hong Kong and Macau, as well as foreign journalists and online media.
For the first time, the report also includes an IFJ assessment of the number of jailed and detained journalists and media workers and documents at least 51 cases, some dating back to 2008.
The IFJ AP also launched a digital security resource for journalists in China, which is a how-to guide for media workers to better protect themselves, their work and their sources from the increasing surveillance and restrictions from the Chinese government.
