Journalist-in-Residence programme in Milan kicks off

The Media Freedom Rapid Response (MFRR) Journalist-in-Residence (JiR) programme in Milan has officially started!

 

Two at-risk journalists, including Khalifa Abo Khraisse, will spend the next few months with us focusing on and sharing their work in a safe and supportive environment.

 

This has been developed by the MFRR partners, Osservatorio Balcani e Caucaso Transeuropa (OBCT) and European Centre for Press and Media Freedom (ECPMF), alongside Q Code.
