Life Hacks (Hacks de Vida) is a guide to better understanding online gender violence in Latin America and how to support those who face it. Targeted at female activists and cyber security experts, it draws on the testimonies of more than 20 campaigners and specialists from the region and deals with the effects of online gender violence on a personal, technical and community level. Authored by Estrella Soria and Luisa Ortiz Pérez in collaboration with IWPR, it was released in March 2018.

IWPR hosted a three-day conference in Tunis on February 26-28 2018 to mark the launch of Post-Revolution Pioneers, its report into women's civil society groups in Libya. Funded by the UK government and produced in partnership with Binda Consulting International, the report draws on extensive field interviews from across the country.

Cyberwomen is a digital security curriculum with a holistic and gender perspective, geared towards both professional trainers and those who want to learn how to train others on their digital protection and include gender considerations as they do so. It is made up of training modules, interactive games and recommendations for evaluating the training, as well as audio-visual and graphic materials as instructional aids.

Throughout 2016, IWPR continued to support free voices in some of the most challenging environments around the world and to help in the production of vital frontline reporting.

Over the next five years, IWPR will strengthen and extend our mission to empower local voices to make positive change. We will continue to work in countries undergoing conflict, crisis and transition to enhance the free flow of information and robust public debate as a means of mitigating conflict, contributing to good governance and enabling citizens to participate in decision-making.

In 2015, with an improved structure for management and day-to-day oversight of programmes, IWPR’s priority was to refine and focus our projects to increase impact, and monitor and evaluate our efforts to document and demonstrate strong results across regional divisions for the Middle East and North Africa, Africa, Asia, Eurasia and Latin America. 

Safety Awareness & Action leaflets are part of IWPR’s Safety Awareness and Action project covering the MENA region and Latin America. One of the project ‘s objectives is to assist women’s rights organisations that are at risk. The leaflets contain digital security tips and are available in four languages: English, Spanish, Arabic and French.

As encapsulated in our slogan – Giving Voice, Driving Change – IWPR’s mission calls for a wide range of efforts aimed at empowering people’s voices and helping them make a real difference within their own societies. The work ranges from skills building and training to media policy and legal reform; from frontline journalism to citizen's accountability networks and social media; from covering war crimes tribunals and human rights abuses to establishing national networks for elections reporting.
