Media Laws

UNESCO promotes freedom of expression and freedom of the press as a basic human right

UNESCO assists Member States in adapting their media laws to internationally-recognized democratic standards.
In cooperation with professional media organizations, academic and legal experts as well as other international and regional organizations, UNESCO is ready to respond to requests from governments and national authorities by providing expert missions, technical and logistical assistance or through the organization of meetings and other events dealing with these subjects.
