2021 Nobel Peace Prizes Laureates
At a time when journalism is one of the most dangerous professions, Maria Ressa and Dmitry Muratov have been awarded the Nobel Prize, for their efforts to protect democracy and freedom of expression. Ressa is a Filipina journalist who, despite the delicate press freedom situation in her country, has always had the courage to report on human rights violations in the context of Duterte's war on drugs. Similarly, Muratov, is the editor-in-chief of Novaya Gazeta, one of the most fearless media outlets reporting on Russian government corruption and the human rights situation in his country.
