Description

Around the world, press freedoms are under attack, and not just by dictators and authoritarian regimes. This course will examine the state of global press freedom in regions with long histories of oppression and also in countries with well-established democratic traditions. We will use several countries as case studies to discuss the challenges and obstacles journalists face in carrying out their duties to inform the public. These include restrictive laws that limit the press, the prosecution and imprisonment of journalists, and the use of intimidation and violence. I will make reference to my personal experiences as a New York Times reporter covering my home country of Afghanistan. The state of press freedom in the United States will also be an on-going discussion topic.
