Sheffield University is playing a leading role in a global campaign to secure stronger protection for journalists.

The university’s Centre for Freedom of the Media is responding to an alarming rise in the number of killings and violent attacks on reporters around the world.

A seminar organised at the European Court of Human Rights in Strasbourg is aimed at enforcing and upgrading legal protections for journalists, whose safety and security is being threatened.
