On 27 May 2015 the United Nations Security Council passed Resolution 2222. That historic Resolution recognised that journalists and media professionals play an “important role in protection of civilians and conflict prevention by acting as an early warning mechanism in identifying and reporting potential situations that could result in genocide, crimes against humanity and other serious violations of international humanitarian law.” The Resolution also recognised that their work “often puts them at specific risk of intimidation, harassment and violence in situations of armed conflict.”
