May 3rd 2021 is World Press Freedom Day. To mark the occasion, Elizabeth Mistry will take us on a whirlwind tour through the history of modern journalism in Mexico and focus on the ongoing challenges facing those in the media attempting to report on and in a country which has been dubbed ‘one of the most dangerous places to be a journalist.’

She has also written about Mexico for The Independent, The Times of London and The Art Newspaper – as well as contributing to El Universal, Reforma and SemMexico.
