Summary

30 August 2023 – for immediate release Ukraine: Training for Journalists on Documenting International Crimes [Текст українською йде далі] The Centre for Law and Democracy (CLD) and the Regional Press Development Institute (RPDI) provided a training programme for Ukrainian experts and journalists last week based on our Manual for Journalists on Collecting and Preserving Information About Internatio. [...] The core idea behind the programme is that journalists reporting from the frontlines are often the first to come across information about the commission of international crimes, including war crimes. [...] The focus of the training was on how to recognise international crimes in the first place and then to capture information about them such in a manner that it might be accepted as evidence by courts. [...] “Rather, we are trying to promote the idea that the information can, with relatively little additional effort, essentially be used for both reporting and criminal accountability purposes.” Journalists in Ukraine have already demonstrated the potential of their work to contribute to international crimes prosecutions. [...] The training programme started with a training of trainers delivered by CLD experts and was followed up by having the trained trainers deliver training to frontline journalists with support from the CLD experts.
