Safety of journalists abroad and in areas of conflict (November 8, 2016)


We are fully committed to the freedom of the press, to the right of journalists to freely exercise their profession as well as to their safety.

As such, we encourage the journalists working in areas of conflict to register themselves on the Ministry of Foreign Affairs and International Development’s Ariane website, to provide information about their routes and, if necessary to contact our consulates or embassies.

The Ariane system provides travelers with safety recommendations by text or email and allows them to be contacted in crisis situations. The Ariane system was developed in collaboration with the National Commission on Information Technology and Civil Liberties and fully guarantees the security and privacy of personal data.
