New partnership promotes responsible reporting in Pakistan
International Alert is collaborating with Journalists for Democracy and Human Rights (JDHR) to promote more plural, objective and ethical media reporting in Pakistan.
The partnership, which was marked by representatives from Alert and JDHR jointly signing a Memorandum of Understanding in May, aims to engage the media in Pakistan with citizens to promote and protect human rights, democracy and social cohesion in the country.
Last month International Alert, in close collaboration with the London School of Business and Finance (LSBF), organised a series of three-day trainings for private sector and national and international civil society organisations on conflict-sensitive business initiatives.
The training, entitled ‘Building the capacity of Pakistan’s business sector to benefit from dividends of peace’, was funded by the European Union. The series kicked-off in Rawalpindi on 4–5 September, followed by Islamabad on 8–10 September and Karachi on 12–14 September.
International Alert hosted a panel discussion at the Global Summit to End Sexual Violence in Conflict (ESVC) in London on 11 June.
The summit brought together survivors of sexual and gender-based violence, experts, NGOs and government delegations from over 100 countries, and was co-chaired by UK Foreign Secretary William Hague and UNHCR Special Envoy Angelina Jolie.
This study is one of a series of regional studies which aim to present evidence of the interactions between environmental, social, political and economic risks at the local level in South Asia.
