IWPR constantly seeks regional contributors to its award-winning Internet reporting services. Our authors are journalists and analysts with substantial expertise in the regions featured in IWPR’s output.
IWPR has a limited capacity to support research projects, training activities and special projects.
On occasion, however, IWPR contributors and their newsroom colleagues have faced threats and even direct attack. Pressures can take the form of direct legal action, libel claims, or extra-judicial intimidation. Sometimes it is just a security official’s knock on the door, sending a well-targeted message. IWPR takes all such threats very seriously. Such attacks only underline the imperative of international support to enable local journalists to carry out their work. Unlike foreign correspondents, local reporters cannot readily pack their bags and leave the country when their safety is a risk.
