Description

Media freedom is under pressure in multiple and complex ways across the Commonwealth. These pressures assume particular importance at election times, when access to information or restrictions on the news environment assume even greater importance. This workshop will review the assessments and recommendations of Commonwealth election monitoring teams on this crucial aspect of democracy and governance. The particular focus of the workshop will be the 2017 elections, including the contentious Kenyan poll.
