Press Freedom in Azerbaijan

Press Freedom in Azerbaijan | Meydan TV English

Azerbaijan has risen in Reporters Without Borders' 2021 Press Freedom Index. But rising from 168th to 167th is not a serious success for the country. In reality, Azerbaijan's press freedom is going backwards.

Harassment of journalists, imprisonment, and lack of accreditation are just a few of the obstacles independent media in Azerbaijan face. In Reporters Without Borders' 2010 report, the country was listed at 152.

While you are here …

We have a small favor to ask of you. In an environment where information is under tight government control, Meydan TV works hard to ensure that people have access to quality independent journalism. We shed light on stories you might otherwise not read because we believe that those who cannot speak up deserve to be heard, and those in power need to be held accountable. We invest considerable time, effort and resources to do so, which is why we need your help.

Your support empowers our courageous journalists, many of whom work at great personal risk to freedom and safety. Every contribution to the protection of independent journalism in Azerbaijan matters. Thank you.
