About the organization
At Internews, we believe everyone deserves trustworthy news and information to make informed decisions about their lives and hold power to account. We train journalists and digital rights activists, tackle disinformation, and offer business expertise to help media outlets become financially sustainable. We do all of this in partnership with local communities – who are the people best placed to know what works.
We support independent media in 100 countries, from radio stations in refugee camps, to hyper-local news outlets, to individual activists and reporters. We’ve helped our partners reach millions of people with quality, local information that saves lives, improves livelihoods, and holds institutions accountable.
Journalists and independent media outlets based in Southeastern and Central Europe work in challenging environments characterized by media ownership concentration, job insecurity, and hostility from state and non-state actors in the form of digital targeting and espionage. Many of these journalists, particularly freelancers, do not have support to address such threats, and as a result, are often ill-equipped to respond to increasingly complex online attacks. Internews has launched a new initiative designed to support local journalists (with a focus on freelance journalists) and small independent media outlets in Southeastern and Central Europe by helping them prevent, mitigate, and respond to online attacks by combining proven digital safety training methods with state-of-the-art, innovative scenario-based trainings.
