Raising awareness activities on gender equality and media continue in the regions of Azerbaijan

Two information sessions on “Gender equality and media” were organized on 12-13 March 2019 in Guba by the Council of Europe under its project "Gender Equality and Media Freedom in Azerbaijan". The main aim of the information sessions was to present the Code of professional ethics for Azerbaijani journalists, recently revised from a gender equality perspective and to promote the new rules among journalists from the regions. The information sessions also raised awareness on the Council of Europe standards on gender equality and media freedom.

The information sessions were organized in close cooperation with the Ombudsman Office and Azerbaijan Press Council. Two information sessions brought together over 40 journalists and representatives of civil society from Guba, Khahmaz, Shabran and Siyazan.


Following the decision of the Committee of Ministers on 16 March 2022 the Russian Federation is no longer a member of the Council of Europe. The website will be updated as soon as possible to take account of this development.
