How we work
We practice and defend responsible, independent and accurate journalism in conflict and post-conflict situations, humanitarian crises and countries undergoing democratic transition. Our information covers the news in the regions where we work, as well as key issues that unite societies.
Our debate programmes bring together all political and social components of society. They facilitate the participation of ordinary people in public debate, creating a platform where everyone has a voice.
... and why
Through our work, millions of people in war-affected countries, post-conflict areas, humanitarian crises, and societies in democratic transition have access to media that speak to them and give them a voice.
