Eighth Issue of IFJ Focus on Safety Out Now - Read All About It!

07 July 2015

The eighth issue of IFJ Focus on Safety is out now! The action- packed month of June saw the launch of IFJ/EFJ safety handbook for Russian and Ukrainian journalists in Vienna, the appeal to the UN Security Council for the protection of journalists in Yemen and the strong participation at the debate on the report of the UN Independent Commission of Inquiry into violations of humanitarian law during the 2014 summer conflict in Gaza.

The 2015 European Games in Baku, Azerbaijan were also of interest to the IFJ/EFJ which provided safety tips for journalists through an expert media advisory issued ahead of the Games. The media crisis in Burundi remained a key priority and the IFJ together with FAJ and other partners continued to mobilise support for journalists, both inside and outside the country.
