10 Feb: Counter-censorship workshop

Index on Censorship is hosting a workshop on how ​the next generation of ​journalists can address threats and challenges to ​their freedom in Europe.

​In 2015 and beyond, there is a world of new challenges for the journalist — from legal threats​, online harassment and intimidation​,​ ​to ​surveillance and physical attacks​.​

Index staff, guest speakers and participants will discuss risks and challenges, highlight ​effective ​measures​ that​ exist​ to combat these, and​ share experience and best practice.

An introduction to digital security and training material including Security-In-A-Box will also be provided.

This workshop is for young journalists and students in journalism. Participation is free of charge but limited to 20 participants.
