The 4th Estate Book Launch

The Fourth Estate: Media Freedoms and Rights in Uganda analyses the media through the human rights lens. It makes a case for respecting media rights as fundamental human rights to be enjoyed by everyone and is not therefore a strictly professional right. Media freedoms lie at the core of public political participation and democracy. It is therefore unconstitutional to require journalists to have college degrees, compulsorily belong to a professional body and be licensed in order to exercise a fundamental right. The book makes a case for self-regulation.
