Twenty years after the Windhoek Declaration, digital media provide new opportunities for freedom of expression and accessing information, but the technology that makes these channels possible also offers repressive regimes new means of censorship and the silencing of voices. The Associated Press will host a town hall-format discussion in the Knight Studio at the Newseum featuring four journalists from challenging media environments who face cyber-surveillance, digital harassment and other censorship threats. The event will be moderated by the AP’s Kimberly Dozier, a veteran foreign correspondent and specialist on international security issues.
