Right to Voice: Promoting media freedom of expression in Nepal
This project provides journalists in Nepal with forums where they can discuss the causes of self-censorship with authorities and together generate ideas for improving freedom of expression.
Through systematically documenting attacks and threats made towards journalists, it enables human rights defenders to hold perpetrators to account for their actions.
The project also advocates for a more inclusive media sector in Nepal, which doesn’t ignore the voices of marginalised communities. This is important because the media in Nepal is mostly controlled and operated by elites, who often don’t understand the interests or concerns of these communities.
By promoting these excluded voices and reducing threats facing journalists, the project aims to contribute to greater media freedom of expression and pluralism in Nepal.
