According to the report, at least three journalists a month flee their home countries to escape threats of violence, prison or harassment, and only one in seven ever returns home. Reporters Without Borders (RSF) marked World Refugee Day by publishing a guide for exiled journalists – providing them with information about the main procedures and potential obstacles in seeking asylum. The guide covers the steps to be taken with the Office of the UN High Commissioner for Refugees and also asylum procedures within the European Union, the United States and Canada: three of the top destinations for exiled journalists.
