Twelve countries feature in the new Fragile Freedom, Inaugural Pacific press freedom report, a publication concerned with strengthening press freedom and the rights of media workers in the Pacific. When read alongside a monograph from the Pacific Media Centre, Pacific Media Freedom 2011: A status report, published the previous year as the region’s first media freedom dossier (and republished as a monograph in May 2012), these two documents shed insight into the interacting tensions between journalists and the power structures they work alongside and within.
