Equality Rights Group calls for dialogue on structure and role of the press ahead of World Press Freedom Day

A social dialogue needs to be opened up on the structures and role of the press, the Equality Rights Group has said ahead of World Press Freedom Day.

In a statement, the group has thanked local media for the opportunities it has provided to voice the ERG's 21 years of activism.

It says that, in keeping with this year's theme that information is a public good, a frank debate on this would ensure public engagement. It adds that it will be working on a campaign and documentary to promote discussion within established media itself to promote its increasingly important role.
