Empowering Exiled Journalists for Human Rights Reporting

Last week, JHR’s field office staff in Turkey organized the inaugural training sessions for one of our newest projects, the Connected Protection Journey. This project is funded by Open Society Foundations and aims to empower exiled Syrian and Afghan journalists.

More than 28 trainees participated in two impactful days of training focussed on human rights media. These courageous individuals have first-hand experience reporting from Afghanistan and Turkey, and this training will help support them in covering the pressing human rights issues in the region.

The Connected Protection Journey is a JHR-led initiative that seeks to enhance policies and develop best practices to bolster international protection access for journalists and human rights defenders. We firmly believe that by empowering these brave voices, we can strengthen human rights reporting and advocate for change.
