Violations Of Press Freedom Barometer

Violations Of Press Freedom Barometer.

This interim 2017 report of press freedom violations gives us an early perspective of what is happening to journalists and media activists around our world. It only covers journalists for whom Reporters Without Borders was able to clearly establish that they were killed or imprisoned in connection with their journalistic work. Reporters Without Borders, also known under its French name Reporters sans frontières (RSF), announced their recent opening of her first Asia bureau in Taipei. It has its headquarters in Paris, with 11 offices worldwide (Berlin, Brussels, Geneva, Helsinki, London, Madrid, Rio de Janeiro, Stockholm, Tunis, Vienna and Washington D.C.) and correspondents in 130 countries. The new bureau in Taipei will focus on the east Asian territories including China, Hong Kong, Taiwan, Japan, North Korea, South Korea and Mongolia. “The opening of an East Asia office corresponds to the ongoing international expansion of our association and aims to better address the new challenges of media freedoms in this increasingly influential region of the world,” explains RSF Secretary General Christophe Deloire. “The choice of Taiwan was made not only with regards to its central geographic location and ease of operating logistics, but also considering its status of being the freest place in Asia in our annual Press Freedom Index ranking.”
