Reporters Without Borders released its 2015 World Press Freedom Index, which ranks nations based on the freedom the media enjoys in reporting. The international organization claims an overall decline in press freedom worldwide over the past year, partly due to non-state entities such as Islamic State and Boko Haram.
Taiwan was ranked 51st in the index, falling one place from 2014, placing it behind Comoros and ahead of Romania. Taiwan’s highest ranking was 32nd in 2007.
Topping the list are Finland, Norway, and Denmark, respectively.
