This year, the Nobel Peace Prize was awarded to Maria Ressa from the Philippines and Dimitrij Muratov from Russia for their efforts for freedom of expression, which is a prerequisite for democracy and lasting peace.

Both in the Philippines and in Russia, journalists are experiencing increased pressure, both from the authorities and in more informal channels, such as social media. It is crucial for press freedom that journalists meet the challenges that follow.
