UNESCO’s recent e-publication based on the 2010 World Press Freedom Day conference, hosted by Queensland University in Brisbane last May, brings together a remarkable selection of presentations by journalists, media and communication professionals from different regions including a substantial contribution from the Pacific. This publication serves as a reminder of the importance of journalists’ work, the risks they face and the urgency of securing their safety and punishing those who violate their right to report freely and safely.
