Map of the Month 02/2021

On 24 February the Alliance for Multilateralism met once again on the margins of the 46th Human Rights Council in Geneva. Under the heading "New Frontiers for Human Rights. Pandemic Preparedness and Response", the relevance of the International Partnership for Information and Democracy was highlighted. The initiative condemns the manipulative use of fake news to undermine democracy. The signatories commit, i.a. to respect and defend freedom of opinion and freedom of the press, as well as to protect journalists.
