Last year the UNESCO Kathmandu Office supported FODEJ for the organization of World Press Freedom Day, celebrated yearly since the decision of the General Assembly of the United Nations in 1993. Given the decisive political progress that had been made in Nepal, with the peace agreement of 2006, attention should be given to the issues of press freedom, which will themselves be critical to the stabilization of Nepal and its transition to a full-fledged democracy. This year UNESCO has once again decided to turn to FODEJ, in order to ascertain what progress has been made over this period, and what kinds of blockages still remain. This year the theme of World Press Freedom Day is ‘Freedom of Expression, Access and Empowerment’, and it is extremely timely. Nepal has just gone to the polls and elected its Constituent Assembly. Over the next two years the country will be the scene of wide and certainly impassioned debate about the constitution and the structures that will be established in view of consolidating democracy and also ensuring that the development of Nepal which, though often impressive, has been characterized by numerous bottlenecks, both social and political. The role of the media over this period will be capital, because it should ensure the continuous flow of pertinent information to the people of the country, who will consequently also be able to influence the course of events through their elected leaders and the strong civil society organizations that characterize Nepal.
