Amal Clooney Convenes First Meeting of Panel of Legal Experts for Media Freedom Campaign
London: Amal Clooney, a barrister at Doughty Street Chambers, addressed attendees at the Global Conference to Defend Media Freedom, hosted jointly by the UK and Canadian governments.
In her remarks, she stated: “The current media crisis involves both the silencing of truth and the amplification of misinformation to levels we have never seen before. I believe that the way the world responds to this crisis will define our generation and determine whether democracy can survive.”
