GLOBAL PRESS FREEDOM SUMMIT INCLUDES PMC
The Paris-based global media freedom watchdog Reporters Without Borders recently hosted press freedom defenders from the Asia-Pacific for a summit in the French capital.
Invited participants included Pacific Media Centre director Professor David Robie and delegates from Australia and Papua New Guinea among the 23 correspondents from 17 countries or territories.
The representatives were from Afghanistan, Australia, Bangladesh, Cambodia, China, India, Japan, Hongkong, Maldives, Mongolia, Nepal, New Zealand, Pakistan, Papua New Guinea, Philippines, Taiwan, Thailand and Tibet along with a team of Paris-based RSF advocates.
Asia Pacific head Daniel Bastard said the consultation was part of a new strategy making better use of the correspondents’ network to make the impact of advocacy work faster and even more effectively than in the past.
Dr Robie is convenor of the Pacific Media Watch freedom project which has employed post graduate students in part-time reporting/editing/research roles.
