Our latest episode of Media Coffee is a special edition exploring press freedom.

In the discussion we explore the current state of press freedom and examine how journalists, media organisations and governments can work together to uphold this vital pillar of our democracy.

Joining our expert panel are:

  • Dawn Alford – Executive Director, Society of Editors
  • Heather Bakken – President, World Press Freedom Canada
  • Cheryl Douglas – Global Senior Director of Media Research, Cision
  • Janet Silver – Director, World Press Freedom Canada

Established in 2008, World Press Freedom Canada advocates for freedom of expression which culminates in the annual event to celebrate World Press Freedom Day on 3 May.

The Society of Editors, made up of nearly 400 members across the UK, campaigns for media freedom, self-regulation, the public's right to know and the maintenance of high standards in journalism and diversity in newsrooms.
