The Women's Reporting & Dialogue Programme

IWPR is pleased to announce the launch of an exciting new project to support female journalists in Afghanistan, Central Asia, Azerbaijan and the North Caucasus.


The Women's Reporting & Dialogue Programme - currently covering non-Arab Muslim countries - will seek to strengthen the capacity of local media and individual journalists to cover gender issues through training and information provision. It also seeks to create a regional network of female journalists whose high-quality output will provide a much-needed source of comprehensive information on gender issues in the regions.


Following two productive round tables events held in Kabul and Bishkek, we held a successful regional conference in Baku, Azerbaijan. This provided a valuable opportunity for journalists participating in the project to share experiences and expertise, as well as receiving training and guidance.
