Implementation of Press Freedom under Article 19 of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights among United Nations Member States: SWOT Analysis

Jean Baptiste Hategekimana


Abstract: The Universal Declaration of Human Rights adopted by the United Nations in 1948in its 19th article stipulates that everyone has the right to freedom of opinion and expression; this right includes freedom to hold opinions without interference and to seek, receive, and impart information and ideas through any media and regardless of frontiers. The implementation of this article pushed the UN to attribute to the United Nations Educational, Scientific, and Cultural Organization (UNESCO) a specific mandate which is to foster freedom of expression, and its corollaries, press freedom and freedom of information. In addition many countries recognize the press freedom in their constitutions and laws to allow journalists and people to access and disseminate information. However, we noticed that the implementation of press freedom is not smoothly done in member states of the UN. Thus this SWOT Analysis aims at providing the current situation of press freedom and the suggestions that should help to improve its implementation all the world.
