Presentation of "World Trends in Freedom of Expression and Media Development: Global Report 2017/2018"
UNESCO in brief. Director General. Governance. On media freedom trends, the UNESCO director said there was a tightening of old curbs on journalism, and new ones were being added. However, progress had been made with 112 countries now having Freedom of Information laws, and at least 60 States protecting public sector whistle-blowers. Dealing with media independence, Berger said this was eroding. He pointed to trust in news journalism declining, a weakening of the economic base of media outlets and populist ongoing efforts to discredit and delegitimize journalism. As regards trends in media pluralism, Berger noted the continued heavy under-r

Where the media is controlled, art becomes the last voice of freedom; more trusted than official outlets, a channel for dissidence, a telling of alternate histories, alternate futures. Where women’s voices are silenced, women’s self-expression is an act of defiance, of refusal of the strict limitations of gender roles. Where societies are based in fear and oppression, art is a seed of hope for a better world. The first ever UN report on freedom on artistic expression and creativity published by the UN Special Rapporteur in the field of culture last spring was a long-awaited achievement, raising many crucial questions, calling upon governments to take action; and for violations to be recorded. However, international reports on violations of human rights tend to focus on media freedom, to the exclusion of other forms of expression.

Freedom of expression contributes to the “marketplace of ideas,” a concept popularized by John Stuart Mill. Ideally, allowing individuals to voice diverse and even controversial ideas and opinions leads to desirable and vetted sociopolitical solutions. This permits people to air their grievances and works as a pressure release valve, helping to curb violent uprising by the population. The freedoms of the press propositions closely link media freedoms with democracy development, as well as sociopolitical stability. In a 2008 UNESCO special report on press freedom and development, Gusevea et. al discovered relationships between press freedoms, militarization, (in)stability and violence. They found that press freedoms were more restricted in countries that spent more on military (the US an obvious outlier here).

Freedom of expression
Freedom of Expression and the right to seek informa-tion are interlinked and fundamental human rights as stated in Article 19 of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights.2 This is especially worth recalling as 2008 marks the 60th anniversary of that declaration. Each year on 3 May, World Press Freedom Day marks the institutional form of Freedom of Expression. At the 2008 World Press Freedom Day celebration in Maputo, UNESCO explored how both Press Freedom and Freedom of Information can feed into the wider objective of empowering people. This focus built on an earlier meeting of experts in Paris during 2008, which analyzed the link between Freedom of Information and sustainable develop-ment. Ensuring freedom for the media around the world is a priority. Independent, free and pluralistic media are central to good governance in democracies that are young and old.

Freedom of expression constitutes one of the essential foundations of such [democratic] society, one of the basic conditions for its progress and for the development of every man. Subject to Article 10(2), it is applicable not only to “information” or “ideas” that are favourably received or regarded as inoffensive or as a matter of in-difference, but also to those that offend, shock or disturb the State or any sector of the population. Freedom of expression and media freedom. It follows from what has been said so far that the role of the mass media is of particular importance. Again, the role of “public watchdog” is something that the ECtHR has stressed on many occasions
