Internews Europe - Events

Internews Europe is an international development organisation specialising in supporting independent media, freedom of information and free expression around the globe. The vast majority of our programmes are targeted at crisis-hit populations, emerging democracies and some of the world’s poorest countries.

We believe access to information and resilient local media are key to good governance, access to human rights, conflict resolution, effective response to humanitarian crises and public understanding of critical issues such as climate change.

Internews’ media development and information access projects ultimately enable people to hold their governments to account, to develop tolerant and prosperous communities and rebuild lives and livelihoods following destabilising conflict or humanitarian disasters.
