What’s the best way to advance press freedom and the safety of journalists within the OGP process? This session seeks to answer the question through a detailed examination of the situation facing Mexico, the host of the OGP Summit and one of the world’s most dangerous countries for journalists. It will be conducted in a “fishbowl” format and will feature leading journalists and media activists like Norma Trujillo and Daniela Pastrana. Representatives from the Colombian and Mexican government will discuss actions they’ve taken, such as the creation of a special protection mechanism for journalists under threat.
