By Anissa Sameer

The Centre for Policy Alternatives (CPA), in collaboration with the Free Media Movement (FMM), launched a trilingual research report entitled “Human Rights and Democracy, Threats to Journalists, HR Defenders and Civil Society 2022” at an event at Hotel Janaki, 7 April. 

The report is a result of a six-month project which emphasises the necessity and importance of freedom of speech and expression, and the right to information through responsible journalism, and analyses 24 recent cases of threats to media freedom and human rights. The event was opened by CPA Senior Researcher Lionel Guruge who shared anecdotes and learnings from his life-long involvement in human rights activism as well as the objectives of the six-month project which was to reinforce human rights and democratic values through journalism.
