Support Ukrainian Journalists Reporting Conflict
Jun 6, 2023

Reflections on a Year of Conflict

Now over one year since Russia’s full-scale invasion of Ukraine, we remain dedicated to supporting journalists on the frontlines of war. The global news cycle is moving the spotlight away from this war, but independent media in Ukraine still need crucial support. 

We're still supporting emergency response, prioritizing the safety of journalists, but also the creation of high-quality content as well as investigative reporting and anti-corruption efforts, the introduction of media literacy in schools, crucial media reforms, innovations in combatting disinformation, and efforts to improve the long-term sustainability of key media institutions in the country. 

Recently, we’ve turned our ear to listening to refugees in Moldova, using their voices to inform the wider humanitarian response and publishing two reports compiling our findings, with practical recommendations for media, humanitarian, and governmental service providers: 

  • An Information Ecosystem Assessment in Moldova, researching how Ukrainian refugees and Moldovan citizens create, access, and share information about the Ukrainian refugee response. It aims to identify barriers to accessing quality information, risks in information access, and information gaps which could contribute to misinformation and social tensions. 
  • An analysis of social listening to monitor sentiments and perspectives shared by Moldovan social media users about Ukrainian refugees and the wider refugee response. The timing of this social listening enabled an assessment of the temperature of the information ecosystem at a critical moment in Moldova, seeking to capture harmful discourse that could impact refugee services or pose a risk to refugees or aid workers and volunteers. 

Our experiences in Ukraine led to the development of our Emergency Fund, which has allowed us to act quickly at the start of the humanitarian crisis in Sudan. We continue to challenge our own understanding of our role as an organization in emergency response, as digital spaces become more and more saturated and life-saving information becomes more and more critical. We've been working in Ukraine since 1994 and have seen the shift in public perception firsthand. In such trying times, it's an honor to be a part of the push for prioritizing free and independent media and supporting the journalists who keep it alive.  

You make our critical work possible. Thank you for your continued support.
