The 2019 Palestine Press Freedom Index

Ramallah (15/09/2020) – We were about to announce the results of the second index of media freedom in Palestine for the year 2019 in the first half of the beginning of the year. However, the spread of the Covid-19 epidemic in Palestine and the world, the declaration of the state of emergency in March and the accompanying measures to prevent movement, and finally the general atmosphere that prevailed during the past months which turned the public’s eye on the dangers and effects of the epidemic and led us, at the Palestinian Center for Development and Media Freedoms “MADA”, to postpone its announcement month after month.

On the other hand, the media scene before Covid-19 has differed from what follows, and this matter will certainly be reflected in the third indicator for 2020, as the Palestinian media is facing new challenges and profound transformations that will be reflected heavily on the media scene in the coming months.

It is worth mentioning that the second index comes within the project "A Step Forward towards Enhancing Freedom of Expression in Palestine", supported by the European Union.
