Human Rights TV Magazine

The goal of these TV programmes (produced in Arabic and Kurdish) is to improve the understanding of - and support for - human rights among Iraqis, using human interest features to communicate often abstract concepts. The studio discussion of the features - and the issues raised in them - also allows for public questioning of politicians and civil society representatives. Discussion of such issues has never been done on Iraqi TV before. Each episode involves a new group of trainee producers, who receive on-the-job training and mentoring from IWPR Kurdish and Arab production teams.
