Journalists' Toolbox

This Journalists’ Toolbox section brings together a collection of articles from Index on Censorship correspondents that we believe offers helpful advice and knowledge to other reporters. Articles are published in three languages, Russian, Spanish and Arabic, to offer support for those struggling against censorship and authoritarian control.

The articles we feature here are researched and written by experienced and in some cases award-winning, reporters who have a reputation for excellence. This section will hopefully offer journalists and other writers knowledge and shared experience that will help them build on their own expertise to do their jobs and also benefit from knowledge from other parts of the world. We also include archive articles that may be useful for reference.

Index on Censorship has also tried to create networks of shared knowledge from around the world about how writers and scholars can fight for freedom of expression, this section is part of that intention.
