Media Freedom Panel Discussion: Exploring Disinformation and Attacks on Reporters' Credibility
A free press is essential to democracy, but disinformation and attacks on reporters' credibility undermine media freedom.

Join us for a special Media Freedom event, hosted by the British Consulate-General in Vancouver, in partnership with the UBC School of Journalism, Writing, and Media, and the UBC Global Reporting Centre, for a panel discussion to consider these important issues.

Media Freedom Panel:

- Mohamed Fahmy, Award-winning Journalist, Author, and Human Rights Defender

- Peter Klein, Professor, UBC School of Journalism, Writing, and Media; Executive Director, Global Reporting Centre

- Kiran Nazish, Founding Director, Coalition For Women In Journalism; Professor, Brandon University

- Simon Collard-Wexler, Deputy Director, Human Rights and Indigenous Affairs Policy, Global Affairs Canada

Moderated by Susan le Jeune d'Allegeershecque, British High Commissioner

Opening Remarks, by video, from Lord Ahmad, Minister of State, Foreign, Commonwealth & Development Office

This event comes just a week before Canada will host the second annual Global Conference on Media Freedom, virtually with Botswana. The inaugural conference was co-hosted by the UK and Canada last year in London.

Together, we must defend media freedom.

Nov 9, 2020 10:00 AM in Vancouver
