Safety Training Workshop for Bloggers and human rights defenders.
Pakistan Press Foundation (PPF) with the support of The European Union plans to organize ten three-day holistic security training workshops for bloggers and human rights defenders in different cities. 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, and the second from 27_ 29th Nov, 2020, and we are now accepting nominations for the third workshop scheduled for December 25-27th in Karachi. The deadline for receiving CVs from those interested in participating in the second training workshop in Karachi is Sunday, December 20, 2020.
Those who wish to attend the workshop can send their CVs and links to their blogs to firstname.lastname@example.org,
