Safe Haven for Journalists in Danger

Media workers are encountering many threats and risks while doing their job, and sometimes it is necessary to leave one’s own area for a while. One opportunity to get away and benefit professionally at the same time is the Journalist-in-Residence Programme offered by the European Center for press and Media Freedom (ECPMF).

For up to 12 months, a media worker at risk can take a time-out from the direct threat he or she is facing in their home country. The ECPMF provides a safe home, a scholarship and many other forms of support as well as the possibility to work at the centre in Leipzig.

Next application date is November 8. Read more
