Media in exile

Under threat of imprisonment, torture, violence, or even death, an unprecedented number of media workers are being driven into exile. A trend which is likely to grow exponentially in the upcoming years. Rather than quitting journalism, many of them carry on their operations and continue reporting from outside their country. In exile, journalists and their media outlets fulfill an incredibly important role, often being the only source of reliable information about what is happening within the largely closed borders of their countries. Free Press Unlimited supports both exiled media and exiled journalists to continue their work away from their home country, as safely as possible.
