Global Toolkit for Judicial Actors: International Legal Standards on Freedom of Expression, Access to Information and Safety of Journalists

It is crucial to raise the capacities and strengthen the knowledge of the judiciary in order to guarantee international legal standards on freedom of expression, access to information, and the safety of journalists. Through five comprehensive modules, this toolkit aims to reinforce the practical application of universal standards on human rights, by bringing in approaches of regional human rights courts as well as perspectives from national legal systems. It incorporates examples and debates originating in different legal traditions, including the common law and civil law systems, to provide a global framework for judges and judicial actors around the world.
