Mission to Improve Freedom of Expression in Uganda

In the wake of the killing of two journalists and concerns over a proposed amendment to the press law, Freedom House led a joint mission of seven regional and international non-governmental freedom of expression organizations to Uganda to meet with high level government officials, media representatives, and civil society activists. The goal of the mission was to provide solidarity with local groups working to promote freedom of expression, especially in the lead up to next year's elections, and draw attention to impunity against journalists.
