This report notes that peace, not economic prosperity, is the single biggest guarantee of press freedom worldwide in 2008, according to the annual World Press Freedom Index published by Reporters Without Borders (RSF). Peaceful, democratic countries in Europe dominate the top 20 of the 173-nation index, which compiles data for the year ended 1 September. RSF looks at a number of factors in drawing up its press freedom index, including the treatment of journalists, freedom of speech and information, and media ownership.
