UN's Resolution to Protect Journalists - All Talk, No Action?

UN's Resolution to Protect Journalists - All Talk, No Action?

Last month, the UN Human Rights Council agreed, by consensus, to an improved resolution in their aim to protect journalists. Some of the provisions include calls on all states "to release arbitrarily detained journalist, and "to not interfere with the use of encryption and digital security tools that enable anonymity." This latest resolution is considered ground-breaking, to some, but will it receive the backing of the states? Or will it be the same old case of "all talk and no action?" In Case You Missed It explores.

Here are the segments of the episode:

1:15 - Asia Calling 1 - Truth and Reconciliation Commission in Nepal

8:40 - Asia Calling 2 - Zine scene in Indonesia

17:08 - UN's Resolution to Protect Journalists - All Talk, No Action?

This episode was produced by Sharyl Kaur and Muhammad Haniff Baharudin
