IAAN Congratulates Global Journalists Maria Ressa and Dmitry Muratov for receiving the 2021 Nobel Peace Prize. After 86 years, journalists have been awarded the Nobel Prize!
Maria and Dmitry received the Nobel for their courageous fight for freedom of expression in the Philippines and Russia - holding the Beacon of Journalism high as representatives of all journalists who stand up for ideals in a world in which democracy and freedom of the press face increasingly adverse conditions.
Free, independent and fact-based journalism serves to protect against abuse of power, lies and war propaganda. The very ideals that form the core structure of IAAN's education!
