Human Rights Events in the Asia-Pacific

The Doha Centre for Media Freedom (DCMF) organized six training workshops for Syrian journalists in November 2013 in Turkey and December 2013 in Jordan. The first workshop focused on international standards of quality, the second workshop on online journalism, and the third workshop on safety. Additionally, three training workshops were held in Jordan between 3 and 17 December 2013. The workshops were part of DCMF's Ali Hassan Al-Jaber Safety Training for Journalists program launched earlier in 2013. The project is the culmination of the Doha Centre's efforts to engage the emerging Syrian media landscape. Organized in conjunction with Community Media Network and Arab Reporters for Investigative Journalism, these workshops focused on international standards of quality, radio journalism, and investigative journalism.

The Institute for Women's Studies in the Arab World (IWSAW) successfully completed its project on Gender Training for Iraqi Academics and Researchers. The project focused on developing the research writing skills of nineteen Iraqi researchers (Baghdad and Erbil) on how to undertake research projects on women and gender studies. The project developed the participants' awareness of gender-related issues, concepts, and methodologies which allowed them to tackle hitherto unknown and unique topics in their research papers relevant to the current Iraqi context.
