Wan-Ifra organizes panel discussion on media laws

The Indian Constitution is said to be the largest in the world. It, however, makes no mention of freedom of the press, which in this country is derived from the freedom of speech and expression guaranteed under Article 19(1) (a).

The South Asia Chapter meeting of the World Editors Forum, the network of editors within Wan-Ifra, will bring out the report on ‘Media Laws in India.’ An understanding of media laws in the country will help journalists operate in a free and way in-formed. The report will be useful for all journalists working in the print, television and digital arms of the media. Leading voices from media and judiciary have contributed to this report.

This report will be released in a virtual event on 31 October at 1030 hrs IST, followed by a panel discussion on the subject. The event is supported by Konrad Adenauer Stiftung.

The speakers at the release of the report include Mukund Padmanabhan, chairman, World Editors Forum, South Asia Chapter; Mahfuz Anam, editor-publisher, The Daily Star, Bangladesh; Geeta Ramaseshan, High Court lawyer, Chennai, India; and R Krishnadas, legal correspondent, The Hindu.
