UNESCO Report Explores Current State of Journalism and the Media

UNESCO released the report “World Trends in Freedom of Expression and Media Development,” which covers topics such as journalists’ safety, media freedom and independence, and gender-based perspectives.

Concerns outweighed positive results such as greater diversity in opinions due to the rise of citizen journalism. For example, threats to journalists now extend to online content producers, and women are still under-represented in global newsrooms and as owners and managers of news outlets.

Business-related results showed a rise in private media ownership. However, governments can still control the flow of information by directing licenses to friends and allies, says Karin Deutsch Karlekar, who was part of the advisory council for the report.
