Reporting on Gender-Based Violence in the Syrian Crisis: Good Practices in the Media

22.07.2016 / Created by (EMWF)

This best practices guide is designed for journalists and media professionals, with the objective of enhancing the quality of reporting on gender-based violence in the Syrian crisis. Its approach focuses on women´s rights and dignity, which can contribute to opening opportunities for Syrian women to take an active role in forming their own futures, rather than portraying them as “victims”, or a submissive group. The guide presents real examples from well-written media reports published in 2015 that represent effective gender- based violence reporting, aiming to demonstrate how the nine ethical principles of reporting on gender- based violence in a humanitarian context can be practically incorporated by journalists to improve the lives of women and girls affected by the Syrian crisis.
