A panel discussion on India's media laws will include experts from the legal profession and the media.
A new report by the South Asia Chapter of WAN-Ifra's World Editors' Forum tackles the Indian Constitution which - while said to be the largest in the world -makes no mention of freedom of the press, derived in India from the freedom of speech and expression guaranteed under Article 19(1) (a).
The report, 'Media Laws in India', is being released virtually on October 31, and with a panel discussion following.
Taking part are Mukund Padmanabhan (chairman of the World Editors Forum, South Asia Chapter); Mahfuz Anam (editor of the Daily Star, Bangladesh); Geeta Ramaseshan (High Court Lawyer, Chennai, India); and R Krishnadas (legal correspondent of The Hindu).
The event takes place on October 31 from 10.30-12.00 pm, India Time.
