Leading Latin American journalists — including past and present Nieman Fellows — will gather at Harvard on Nov. 18 for a one-day conference that will take a close look at press freedom in Latin America. The speakers will discuss the difficult challenges many journalists face in their countries, including the killings of colleagues, abductions, intimidation, pressure from government officials or from powerful media moguls, and the absence of legal protection and press freedom laws. They also will present innovative solutions to some problems, including how online news magazines can make a difference.
This event is co-sponsored by the Carr Center for Human Rights Policy at HKSG and the David Rockefeller Center for Latin American Studies. Follow the sessions on Twitter at #LatAmPress.
Friday, November 18, 2011, 10:30 – 5:30 p.m.
Rockefeller Center, 1730 Cambridge Street, CGIS South, Belfer Case Study Room S020.
