On September, 30, the Justice for Journalists Foundation will host a side eventAttacks on independent media in post-Soviet autocracies during the Warsaw Human Dimension Conference. Panellists from four post-Soviet countries – Turkmenistan, Georgia, Russia and Kazakhstan – will discuss the experiences of independent media workers. What are the main methods of attacks against independent media? Are they similar or different between the post-Soviet countries, and what are the trends? How are the attacks on the media shaping modern dictatorships? And, of course, what can be done to enhance the security of the independent media?
