Crisis Reporting Centre
The Centre for Crisis Reporting promotes free and fair journalism in areas of crisis and conflict and contributes to international understanding and policy responses to strengthen stability and democratic development around the world.
Based in central London, the Centre gathers leading human rights and media development groups to enhance partnership, provide training/exchange facilities, and establish collaborative media productions, joint events and other activities to increase impact.
Promoting excellence in reporting on crisis and conflict issues with a human rights and policy orientation, it provides practical support to local journalists, linking these efforts to international advocacy groups and to the international media for which London is a prime centre.
Resident partners include the International Crisis Group, CrisisAction, the Dart Centre for Journalism and Trauma, as well as IWPR, for which it serves as headquarters. The facilities are used by leading human rights groups, advocacy and expert organizations, and specialist media projects.
The facilities include a multi-use conference and meeting room, a break-out and training room, a floor for partner NGOS and visiting journalists, a radio studio for podcasts and other production/editing, office space IWPR editorial, programs and development staff, and a café/restaurant for meeting – and relaxing.
The property is in central London, on Gray’s Inn Road, in the Holborn area. It is close to several major media, including Reuters, BBC, The Guardian, ITN Television, as well as Amnesty International and Human Rights Watch.
