Marginal Improvement In State of Free Expression Violations in West Africa – MFWA Report

Analyses of incidents of freedom of expression violations in the 16 countries of West Africa during the first four months of 2014 show a marginal improvement in both the number and severity of violations compared with the same period in 2013.

This   improvement  in particularly media freedom and media pluralism in the region can  be largely  attributed to the  relatively stable   political  atmosphere    and the consistent  campaign by Freedom  of Expression groups  like  the MFWA. Actions  that tend to  limit  freedom  of expression  however  still  exist  in  West Africa.

In this report, the MFWA analyses the number and types of FoE violations that occurred in countries across West Africa for the period January-April 2014. The trends are compared with incidents during the same period in 2013.
