Pusat Internasional untuk Perlindungan Hak Asasi Manusia dan Demokrasi (ICPHRD) akan mengadakan konferensi penting di Chisinau, Moldova, pada tanggal 25 Junith to address pressing issues related to freedom of speech, governance, rule of law, and the judiciary, which are pivotal for Moldova’s democratic progression.

Mengingat tantangan besar yang dihadapi Moldova, termasuk korupsi dan terbatasnya kebebasan pers, yang menghambat kemajuannya menuju stabilitas dan demokrasi, ICPHRD menekankan pentingnya kerja sama internasional dan pertukaran keahlian untuk mengatasi masalah-masalah sistemik ini secara efektif.

ICPHRD adalah sebuah LSM yang berdedikasi untuk memajukan nilai-nilai fundamental demokrasi dan hak asasi manusia di Moldova dan, selanjutnya, lintas batas negara. Konferensi ini akan dimulai dengan pidato pembukaan oleh pendiri ICPHRD Stanislav Pavlovschi, mantan Menteri Kehakiman Moldova, hakim Pengadilan Hak Asasi Manusia Eropa dan advokat hak asasi manusia terkemuka.

Pavlovschi, set to emphasize the critical importance of freedom of expression, stated prior to the event “Freedom of speech is a fundamental right, without which it is impossible to inform citizens about the state of affairs in the country and, ultimately, without which the existence of a democratic state turns into an illusion. From this point of view, this conference represents an important step toward further development of the democratic regime in the Republic of Moldova and beyond”, further adding that “independent journalism and open dialogue play a key role in fostering a truly democratic society.”

The conference will focus on the topic of “Freedom of speech as a fundamental element of all contemporary democratic societies,” drawing from the guiding principles of the European Union. The aim of the conference will be to establish actionable reform strategies, raise public awareness of the role of independent journalism in democracies, enhance understanding of Moldova’s media and democratic challenges, and strengthen partnerships among key stakeholders from across Moldova, Europe, and the US. By fostering these discussions, the ICPHRD aims to catalyze meaningful change and support the ongoing development of democratic institutions in Moldova and beyond.

Freedom of speech, in particular, is a critical concern, especially with Moldova’s upcoming presidential election in October and the subsequent parliamentary elections in 2025. Ensuring free and fair elections is impossible without protecting freedom of expression, making the defense of journalists’ rights a top priority.
