IWPR provides a multilingual platform for journalists who would otherwise have no outlet. Multimedia and text stories cover the themes of IWPR’s project activities, from human rights to good governance, conflict to inclusive societies.

Story production is an integral part of IWPR’s training methodology, as on-the-job mentoring builds massively on formal training courses.
