Description

PROMOTING FREE EXPRESSION

IWPR builds the skills of professional and citizen journalists working in traditional media and in social and new media. Programs train and mentor them to report fairly and objectively with the goal of achieving internationally recognized standards of reporting and analysis.

Reporters, editors, producers, bloggers, and managers learn the value of producing substantive content that informs while helping to define the roles of citizens, civil society, government, the media, business and others in building fair, pluralistic, democratic systems that value and respect the opinions of all constituencies.

Whether in repressive or closed societies, transitional environments, or democratically developing states, IWPR encourages the development and exercise of freedom of expression, assembly, and belief and uses journalism as a tool to advance peace and social justice.


STRENGTHENING ACCOUNTABILITY

Working with international and local partners, IWPR supports the capacity of civil society and human rights groups to more effectively advocate for government and institutional accountability and transparency, with programming designed to reduce corruption, strengthen rule of law, and promote basic rights. It promotes and publicises the work of international courts and tribunals that support justice and hold individuals and groups responsible for crimes against humanity.

IWPR helps communities to more effectively fight against immediate and longer-term threats by building knowledge, empowering, and supporting citizen activism, and helps countries and regions to heal from conflict and war through support for transitional justice.
