Institute for War & Peace Reporting (IWPR) is an international media development charity, established in 1991. IWPR is an international network of three partner not-for-profit organisations. They are governed by Boards of Trustees of senior journalists, peace-building and human rights experts, regional specialists, and business and NGO professionals.
What We Do
IWPR gives voice to people at the frontlines of conflict, crisis and change. It runs major programmes in Afghanistan, the Caucasus, Central Asia, Iran, Iraq, the Balkans, Congo DRC, Tunisia and Uganda. From Afghanistan to Zimbabwe, IWPR helps people in the world's most challenging environments have the information they need to drive positive changes in their lives — holding government to account, demanding constructive solutions, strengthening civil society and securing human rights. Amid war, dictatorship, and political transition, IWPR forges the skills and capacity of local journalism, strengthens local media institutions and engages with civil society and governments to ensure that information achieves impact.
IWPR partners locally with a wide range of local organizations and institutions, from independent print, radio, and TV media, to human rights and women’s groups, to schools, universities, and educational/research institutions. Where appropriate, IWPR works in communication and dialogue with – but never for – local authorities and governments.
IWPR cooperates with many international partners to inform and enrich our work, increase our effectiveness and efficiency, and extend our outreach and impact. Partners include major broadcasters and publications, leading international human rights groups, media support and training institutes, universities and research groups/think tanks.
IWPR maintains a diverse international base of private foundations, individual, and government agencies
