Journalists continue to be murdered for their work in Mexico while their killers enjoy impunity from punishment. Increasing numbers of journalists covering wars in Ukraine and Gaza are being killed in action. Russian and Afghan journalists, among many others, are self-exiling to stay alive. And even in liberal democracies, such as the U.S., journalists are being labeled as “enemies of the state” for daring to tell the truth.

Join Astrid Vehstedt, vice president and officer of the Writers-in-Exile-Program at PEN Center, Germany; Phoebe Alpern, Scholars at Risk Network at New York University; and Peter Laufer,  Professor of Journalism and Co-director UNESCO Crossings Institute for Intercultural Dialogue at University of Oregon for a discussion on how the silencing of the press and ongoing challenges to freedom of expression threaten basic human rights, democracy, and  rule of law across the globe.

This is an excellent opportunity to gain a preview of the ideas, themes, and issues at the core of Extra! Extra! Don’t Kill the Messenger—Migrating to Stay Alive, an upcoming symposium being held at UO April 4–7 focused on refugee journalists, writers in exile, and scholars of journalism engaged in the urgent conversation on freedom of expression under fire.

Copresented with The University of Oregon-UNESCO Crossings Institute and the Global Justice Program at the University of Oregon.
