Journalists around the world are under legal attack like never before. SLAPP lawsuits and legal harassment, designed to drain resources and chill critical reporting, are becoming increasingly common around the world. Cases are often meritless, but burden journalists with the cost of a legal defence. Most journalists face these threats alone, without the protection of media houses or effective legal representation. In this panel, we’ll hear from journalists who each have their own experiences of legal attacks associated with their work and have found ways to fight back.
Organised in association with Media Defence.
