New LACLEARN Grants Call - Barriers to Freedom of Press

Freedom of the press is fundamental to democracy, enabling informed citizenship and transparency. Recent trends in Latin America highlight persistent barriers to freedom of the press, including government-imposed barriers and digital authoritarianism, which undermine democratic processes. This grants call focuses on understanding and addressing these challenges to press freedom across the region.

The purpose of this grant is to examine the current barriers to press freedom in authoritarian and democratically backsliding states in Latin America, focusing on understanding and comparing actions and barriers across countries that curtail press freedom, including government strategies, corporate interests, and organized crime.
