On Thursday 11 February, at 11 AM CET.
The event will bring together press freedom experts and interlocutors from the mission, including editors and human rights experts, to discuss the most significant developments over the past year and examine the main challenges facing Poland’s journalists.
The event will correspond with the launch of the report, which concludes that Poland now faces its greatest set of challenges since 2015 as the ruling Law and Justice (PiS) party continues to wage a multi-pronged attack on independent media in an effort to muzzle critical reporting and undermine independent journalism.
