Posted on Mar 4, 2020 in Specialized Topics

Journalists who are targeted by online harassment and attacks can access these free series.

The International Press Institute (IPI) has launched two video series to provide support to journalists.

 "Coping with the emotional impact", in cooperation with the Dart Centre Europe, highlights   strategies that newsrooms and journalists can take to prevent or minimize the emotional stress and trauma associated with online harassment.

"Legal remedies address online harassment," in cooperation with the Digital Freedom Fund, features types of laws that may be used to defend targets of online harassment and possible pitfalls.

The series are part of IPI’s new Newsroom Ontheline platform, which offers tools and recommendations to help journalists and newsrooms develop defences against online harassment.

The videos are available at any time. No registration is required.
