 Port Vila, Vanuatu: 11-15 April, 2011

The Secretariat of the Pacific Community (SPC) through its Regional Media Centre (RMC) in close collaboration with UNESCO will be undertaking a workshop on Media Freedom which is developed to provide media practitioners with a sound understanding of freedom of expression, freedom of information, media freedom and the relevant national, regional and international policy frameworks that impact these area. Furthermore, it hopes to enhance skills in the development of advocacy campaigns that increase awareness and understanding at the community level of the role and relevance of these freedoms in supporting broader development goals; support in the establishment of mechanisms for monitoring as well as strategically reporting and disseminating information on the violations of these freedoms that occur in their countries and the region and allow for support in the fostering/creation of a Pacific community of practice on media freedoms.
