UNESCO is organizing an international conference for the decision
makers of news organizations, especially the owners, publishers, and
editor-in-chiefs. This follows UNESCO Executive Board 196/Decision 31
which requests "the Director-General to convene a conference with high
level representatives of news organizations from all regions, including
community media and small media outlets, open to stakeholders, to be
fully funded by extra-budgetary contributions, in order for them to
share good practices on the safety of journalists and more proactively
highlight the issue of journalist safety".

The event aims to provide news organizations with a platform to discuss
existing and new measures aimed to strengthen journalists’ safety
worldwide and engage with Member States on these issues. The conference
is hosted in partnership with the World Association of Newspapers and
News Publishers (WAN-IFRA), the International Federation of Journalists
(IFJ), the European Broadcasting Union (EBU), the International Press
Institute (IPI) and the International Women's Media Foundation (IWMF)
and supported by the Swedish International Development Cooperation
Agency (SIDA), The Open Society Foundations (OSF), the World Association
of Community Broadcasters (AMARC), Al Jazeera Media Network, Australia,
Austria, Latvia, Finland, The Netherlands, and Sweden. Please see the
