The Media Discourse and Human Rights in Yemen

Research output: Contribution to conferenceAbstract


The Charter of the United Nations emphasizes the importance of freedom of expression as well as the Universal Declaration of Human Rights. However, freedom of expression and press freedoms are at their worst, especially in the Middle East, and in Yemen in particular. While there are violations against journalists, there are serious violations committed by journalists and press institutions that they are parties to the armed conflict in Yemen.
This paper aims to address the freedom of the press in Yemen and its commitment to human rights principles and discusses the reports issued by international and local organizations regarding the protection of journalists. Also, how journalists can adhere to professional standards and human rights principles and contribute to peacebuilding in Yemen
