Media is a powerful force for positive change. Objective and effective coverage is needed to create public conversations, hold key decision makers accountable and create dialogue on critical issues.
JHR’s rights based approach to media development includes: capacity building activities for journalists, media outlets and the media sector writ large to grow and professionalize human rights coverage. Engagement of key civil society organizations to collect and disseminate data contributing to access to information. And, working with key decision makers on best practices for media engagement. Our approach supports an enabling environment where objective media can thrive and the public can have their voices heard.
