World Press Freedom Day: Defending Human Rights in the Digital Age

In 1993, the UN General Assembly proclaimed 3 May as World Press Freedom Day. More than three decades later, how has the fundamental human right to freedom of expression been supported and challenged? How will freedom of expression enable other human rights to survive and thrive, and what role can technology play in the defense of such rights? 

Hear from experts from the Committee to Protect Journalists, Rory Peck Trust and United Nations Human Rights for an informative discussion around defending human rights in the digital age.


  • Clothilde Redfern, Director, Rory Peck Trust
  • Jon Williams, Director, Committee to Protect Journalists
