International seminar, Mexico City, Mexico, 7 November 2019.
UNESCO and Mexican authorities will organize an international seminar to commemorate IDEI 2019 in Mexico City, Mexico, on 7 November. The event, entitled "Strengthening regional cooperation to end impunity for crimes and attacks against journalists in Latin America”, will bring representatives of Member States, Organization of American States, judicial systems, protection mechanisms, the media and civil society members from across the Latin America and other parts of the world, and in particular from countries that face killings of journalists by organized crime. The seminar will work to identify steps ahead and concrete measures to strengthen the fight against impunity for crimes and attacks against journalists in the Latin America region and inscribe this issue in the framework of global efforts to promote fundamental human rights. It will also contribute to enhance South-South cooperation on this matter.
