Safety Training Workshop for Bloggers and human rights defenders.
Pakistan Press Foundation (PPF) invites applications for a three-day security training workshop in Lahore from bloggers and human rights defenders. The training will include sessions on physical, digital and psychosocial security.
A look at the changing landscape of threats to freedom of expression shows that the threats are increasingly becoming more sophisticated. Where once physical threats were predominant, now digital threats and intimidation through other means is leading to self-censorship of the press and of civil society actors. The holistic training is designed to develop skills of the participants to secure themselves in each of these different kinds of threats, enabling them to perform their democratic function in a safer manner.
The first three-day workshop was held in Karachi from 2-4 November 2020, the second from 27-29th Nov, 2020, and the third from 25 to 27th Dec, 2020 and we are now accepting nominations for the fourth workshop scheduled for February 25-27th in Lahore. The deadline for receiving CVs from those interested in participating in the fourth training workshop in Lahore is Sunday, February 14, 2021.
Those who wish to attend the workshop can send their CVs and links to their blogs to email@example.com,
