Supporting Safety of Journalists In Nepal Published By UNESCO

This report published by UNESCO has presented an assessment of the national media safety landscape for journalists in Nepal. The study has employed Journalists’ Safety Indicators (JSI) of UNESCO for the assessment. Though there is a huge growth in terms of quantity in the media sector in Nepal, journalism remains professionally weak and economically insecure, and the journalists are in highly vulnerable condition in terms of physical and psychological safety. Nearly half of the journalists do not have any appointment letter or contract from their employers and the journalism profession in Nepal is characterized by low wages, irregular payments, poor working conditions, and declining credibility among the public. Journalists perceive that they are prone to be victimized by both State and non-State actors, and the prolonged political transition has further complicated their security situation.

A number of international organisations have been playing important role, directly or indirectly,to monitor and share information about journalists’ safety issues, promote co-ordinated approaches to safety issues and build knowledge and capacity of journalists. Meanwhile,systematic, cumulative and sustainable mechanisms to promote journalists’ safety in Nepal are yet to be developed.
