While more individuals have access to content than ever before, the combination of political polarization and technological change have facilitated the rapid spread of hate speech, misogyny and unverified 'fake news', often leading to disproportionate restrictions on freedom of expression. In an ever-growing number of countries, journalists face physical and verbal attacks that threaten their ability to report news and information to the public.  With a special focus on gender equality in the media, the report provides a global perspective that serves as an essential resource for UNESCO Member States, international organizations, civil society groups, academia and individuals seeking to understand the changing global media landscape.

A summary of the Report was presented by UNESCO Director for Freedom of Expression and Media Development, Guy Berger. “The analysis covers four parts of the media environment that impact on the present and future of journalism,” he said. “These four cover the issues of media Freedom, Independence, Safety and How much pluralism exists – summarized in the acronym F.I.S.H.”. Among the expert comments that followed were several dealing with the “F” - about Report’s signaling of a trend of declining media freedom in global terms.  A powerful message was also delivered that “UNESCO and academia need to understand young people better” if future trends in media and freedom of expression are to be accurately predicted going ahead.
