UN Plan of Action on the Safety of Journalists and the Issue of Impunity

In partnership with Fundamendios and AEDEP, WAN-IFRA brought together 20 Ecuadorean editors in Quito on 31st January to elaborate a common strategy that, it is hoped, will turn back a decade of limitations on freedom of expression under President Rafael Correa. General elections were held in Ecuador on 19th February, and there is renewed optimism that the new government will reconstitute media freedoms in the country.

"Unless our societies fully appreciate the value of professional journalism - and that it contributes directly to their betterment - then our own efforts will always be limited to reacting to attacks and insecurity rather than by being proactive in eliminating the causes of it."
