The United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization (UNESCO) will organise a seminar in Colombo next month to strengthen the fight against impunity, and to improve the safety of journalists.

The seminar titled 'Reinforcing regional cooperation to freedom of expression and the rule of law in Asia through ending impunity for crimes against journalists,' will coincide with this year's International Day to End Impunity for Crimes against Journalists.

The event will be organised in collaboration with the Ministry of Finance and Mass Media with the participation of various regional stakeholders including the Association of Southeast Asian Nations Intergovernmental Commission of Human Rights and representatives from Human Rights Commissions. The event will take place on 4 December and will focus on the role of national Human Rights Commissions as well as on the role of the civil society and the media in the persisting challenge of combating impunity for crimes against journalists in the region.
