This Course Handbook has been produced to accompany the Uganda Radio Network Advanced Radio Journalism Course, which is being run throughout Uganda for freelance radio journalists in 2005 and 2006. The Handbook, which follows the day-by-day course programme, contains transcripts of PowerPoint presentations plus additional supporting material. It is important to note that the material presented in text boxes represents the PowerPoint presentations and can only be properly understood in the context of the course itself.

Whatever drives you to report on justice, you need to have the tools to do it. That is what this handbook sets out to provide. It is intended for journalists undertaking one of the most challenging, important and potentially rewarding of tasks: reporting on the trials of war crimes suspects or investigating war crimes on the ground.

The handbook reviews reporting on general, political and human rights issues. It has sections on location recording and computer based audio editing. It provides guidance on safety and security and sensitive reporting in conflict areas, as well as libel issues. Developed out of the radio journalism workshops that were run as part of IWPR's Uganda Radio Network project, it also reviews the particular requirements for reporting for IWPR.

This collection summarizes in 100 articles the basic events that have taken place in the Caucasus from 1999-2005 - a period during which not only saw the beginning of a new millennium, but of new developments in the region. Every week during these six years, the Caucasus Reporting Service of the Institute for War & Peace Reporting provided readers around the world a view on these events.

Europe's recognition of new states in Yugoslavia remains one of the most controversial episodes of the collapse of Yugoslavia. Richard Caplan offers a vivid narrative of events, exploring the highly assertive role that Germany played in the episode, the reputedly catastrophic consequences of recognition (for Bosnia and Herzegovina in particular) and the radical departure from customary state practice represented by the EU's use of political criteria as the basis of recognition.

This major new work from a leading scholar provides a comprehensive treatment of recent attempts at the international administration of of war-torn territories.

Handbook for Local Journalists in Crisis Areas is a practical guide for journalists in crisis areas, which is based on IWPR’s wide experience of training and working with journalists in Europe, Asia, the Middle East and Africa. The handbook teaches international reporting standards, explaining the journalistic process clearly, from subject choice to final editing. The modules are enhanced with examples and extracts from previously published IWPR stories from around the world.

He travels the length and breadth of Armenia and Azerbaijan, talking to veterans, refugees and the inhabitants of ruined towns and villages. He recreates the story of the descent into conflict of two former Soviet neighbours, its disastrous consequences and the confused efforts of the "Great Powers"-Russia, France and the United States-to bring peace to the Caucasus.

Reporting the Future handbook is designed to help Afghan journalists in three ways. First, it serves as an explanation in their own language to many of the ideas and concepts behind international journalism. Second, it provides practical guidance, including twelve separate exercises, on many of the basic techniques of journalism. Third, the glossary at the back is intended to serve as a reference to explain and introduce many concepts which may be new to Afghan journalists.

With support from the International Organisation of Migration, IOM, IWPR reported on every stage of the Loya Jirga. From this recording, a transcript has been created in local languages (Dari & Pashto).
