WHAT DO WE DO
Freedom of information is fundamental in any democracy, but nearly half of the world’s population has no access to freely reported news and information.
CWB will registers as an interested civil party in judicial cases in order to support journalists in trouble. In addition, CWB provides legal assistance to journalists seeking asylum. It also provides hundreds of support grants to endangered independent media every year.
We will provide protection for journalists, freelancers and stringers, especially those who travel to war zones or dangerous regions. We do this through insurances, training sessions in physical and digital security, an emergency hotline and information manuals.
