This year has been phenomenal in all senses of the word. For the first time in so long, one big story has consistently been the focus of all news and investigative outlets around the world. Investigative journalists are expected to be there; watching, reporting, editing, recording and blowing the whistle on injustice and state failures. In situations like this coronavirus calamity, investigative journalists are the first responders of justice — and history. Failing to do so could have global consequences, so damaging that we might as well stop calling ourselves journalists. In this context our theme “Connecting the World”, is born.
The 2020 World Press Freedom Index, compiled by Reporters Without Borders (RSF), shows that the coming decade will be decisive for the future of journalism, with the COVID-19 pandemic highlighting and amplifying the many crises that threaten the right to freely report on independent, diverse and reliable information.
The index suggests that the next 10 years will be pivotal for press freedom because of converging crises affecting the future of journalism: a geopolitical crisis (due to the aggressiveness of authoritarian regimes); a technological crisis (due to a lack of democratic guarantees); a democratic crisis (due to polarisation and repressive policies); a crisis of trust (due to suspicion and even hatred of the media); and an economic crisis (impoverishing quality journalism).
