International Conference on Impunity for Crimes against Journalists
UNESCO partners with Inter-American System of Human Rights for Impunity conference to take place on 9-10 October 2015 in San José, Costa Rica. Actors from the judicial and legal communities will take part in this event as an advance commemoration of the International Day to End Impunity for Crimes against Journalists (2 November).
The conference will examine how impunity towards crimes against journalists is considered one of the main factors fuelling the cycle of violent crime against the exercise of freedom of expression and human rights more broadly. It will deepen and share experience and jurisprudence of International Courts, as well as national references in regard to national High Courts.
