Media Defence’s vision is a world where journalists no longer face legal challenges that threaten their ability to report freely and independently on issues of public interest, allowing citizens to be better informed, able to hold those in power to account.
One of Media Defence’s core activities is the delivery of litigation surgeries to increase the knowledge, skills and confidence of lawyers to litigate freedom of expression cases at national and regional courts. These surgeries have a practical focus; the programme is tailored to case studies participants are asked to provide, which could be a case they are working on or a case they intend to pursue.
Having previously facilitated litigation surgeries in sub-Saharan Africa, Media Defence will now be organising its first litigation surgery in Latin America which therefore requires a new set of training materials relevant to the region. The training materials are designed for practicing lawyers and give an overview of key concepts and emerging trends in freedom of expression.
Media Defence is looking to hire a consultant to add material on Latin America to the Summary Modules on Digital Rights and Freedom of Expression.
