Public order, state security and press freedom in Ethiopia - EJN/ MediaWise

The Press Freedom Forum on Ethiopia in 2006 - Public order, state security and press freedom in Ethiopia: Towards finding a common round - was the first of a series of annual events organised by the Exiled Journalists’ Network (EJN) in association with MediaWise.

A seminar at the School of Oriental and African Studies (SOAS), University of London, on 27 September 2006, discussed issues around “Public Order, State Security and Press Freedom in Ethiopia: Towards finding a common ground.” It had two panels - the first comprised of Ethiopians recounting their experience of the situation on the ground; on the second, press freedom campaigners described their efforts to improve the situation.


This was followed by a media discussion at the Frontline Club on 29 September where the panellists had the opportunity to meet with the British media.

This report describes the events and offers recommendations for the way forward.
