UNESCO calls for proposals: Research on the Safety of Online Media Actors Doing Journalism

UNESCO launches a call for research proposals in order to produce a qualitative picture of cases around the world linked to guaranteeing the safety of journalists using digital media. The research will analyse the role of governments, intergovernmental organizations, civil society and the media in the protection of online media actors. It will also provide guidelines, good practices and policy recommendations on how to respect the right to freedom of expression in the digital environment. Interested researchers and organizations are invited to submit their proposals by 4 May 2013. For more information click here.
