Conference on New Media and the Press Freedom Dimension

The World Press Freedom Committee, the World Association of Newspapers/World Editors Forum and UNESCO are inviting the public to attend a conference on:

New Media: The Press Freedom Dimension

Challenges and Opportunities of New Media for Press Freedom
15 & 16 February, 2007
UNESCO Headquarters, Paris

The conference will look at how new media is expanding press freedom -- and what repressive regimes are doing to restrict the free flow of information.

Neil Budde, the General Manager of Yahoo!, Oh Yeon-Ho, the founder of the Ohmynews online newspaper, and a wide range of new media and press freedom advocates have joined the program.
