Freedom of Expression and Media Development Division

The Freedom of Expression and Media Development Division facilitates UNESCO’s work on Freedom of expression. UNESCO’s approach to media development includes tailored activities that are context-sensitive, and which also take account of the challenges and opportunities created by the rapidly changing media environment.

As the United Nations agency with a specific mandate to promote “the free flow of ideas by word and image”, UNESCO works to foster free, independent and pluralistic media in print, broadcast and online. Media development in this mode enhances freedom of expression, and it contributes to peace, sustainability, poverty eradication and human rights.

This foundation is why UNESCO today promotes policies for press freedom and the safety of journalists, and why we support independent journalism based on professional ethics and self-regulatory principles.

For UNESCO, pluralistic and diverse media provides information options so that the public can make good choices.
