About IWPR: IWPR strengthens local media at the frontlines of conflict and change, working in two dozen countries and territories around the world. This includes establishing independent local media; training local reporters, editors and producers; supporting extensive in-depth reporting on human rights, good governance and related issues; disseminating professional reporting in developing countries and internationally; and strengthening communications capacity of local human rights, international justice and women’s organisations.
IWPR builds the skills of professional and citizen journalists working in traditional media and in social and new media. Programs train and mentor them to report fairly and objectively with the goal of achieving internationally recognized standards of reporting and analysis.
Reporters, editors, producers, bloggers, and managers learn the value of producing substantive content that informs while helping to define the roles of citizens, civil society, government, the media, business and others in building fair, pluralistic, democratic systems that value and respect the opinions of all constituencies.
Whether in repressive or closed societies, transitional environments, or democratically developing states, IWPR encourages the development and exercise of freedom of expression, assembly, and belief and uses journalism as a tool to advance peace and social justice
In Armenia, IWPR raises public awareness and helps build significant dialogues by strengthening local media skills and capacities.
