The Convention on the protection of journalists on dangerous missions (proposed by the UN in 1971) is compared with the draft International convention to strengthen the protection of journalists in armed conflicts and other situations (proposed in 2007 by «Press Emblem Campaign», which has consultative status under the United Nations).
