Nobel Peace Prize 2021 for Safeguarding Freedom of Expression

The Nobel Peace Prize for 2021 is awarded to Maria Ressa and Dmitry Muratov for their efforts to safeguard freedom of expression in the Philippines and Russia. They are representatives of all journalists who stand up for this ideal in a world in which democracy and freedom of the press face increasingly adverse conditions. 

Ms. Ressa co-founded Rappler, a digital media company for investigative journalism, in Philippines which she is the CEO. Andreyevich Muratov has for decades defended freedom of speech in Russia under challenging conditions. In 1993, he was one of the founders of the independent newspaper Novaja Gazeta. Since 1995 he has been the newspaper’s editor-in-chief for a total of 24 years. 

Without freedom of expression and freedom of the press, it will be difficult to successfully promote fraternity between nations, disarmament and a better world order to succeed in this time.
