"Azerbaijan: Freedom of Expression under Fire"

The video below is featured on Freedom House page, under the section covering the organization's most recent report on Azerbaijan: "Azerbaijan: Freedom of Expression under Fire". It is the end product of a three day mission organized by the International Partnership Group for Azerbaijan's freedom of expression held in September of last year. 

I came across this video as I was updating another report on the situation of freedom of association and assembly in Azerbaijan. 

The report, 
[...] details many challenges that Azerbaijan's bloggers and journalists must endure to carry out their work, including hurdles both legal and societal; critical reporting can lead to prison time; journalists have also been victims of violence, while perpetrators    go unpunished.  
The report is also available in Azerbaijani and the summary of findings are available in Russian
