Inclusive, objective and responsible journalism in Pakistan
Increasing tolerance, respect and mutual understanding between all communities
This project aims to tackle inter-communal violence in Pakistan by building the capacity of journalists to safely promote tolerance for diversity, and report on complex issues without creating tensions between or within communities.
Working across the country, the project will train more than 500 journalists, as well as minority rights activists. It will also commission news articles, videos and blogs on minority rights themes.
Because journalists avoid reporting on sensitive subjects for fear of provoking threats or intimidation, a database of evidence of such threats will be created and used to lobby security providers to improve security for journalists.
