Reporting on Gender Based Violence in the Syria Crisis - A Journalist’s Handbook

Publication

This handbook is designed to help journalists take on this challenging topic, with a particular emphasis on Syria, Jordan, Lebanon, Iraq, Egypt and Turkey, those countries most affected by the Syrian crisis.
The handbook has been developed by the United Nations Population Fund (UNFPA). It sets out to examine some of the terminology, ethical questions, and practical concerns associated with covering GBV, and to provide an overview of some of the organisations involved in combating GBV and providing support services for survivors. 
Whilst effective reporting on GBV requires a certain amount of extra effort to get it right, doing so involves building upon internationallyrecognised ethical principles which all journalists should be familiar with: accuracy, fairness, as well as respect for and protection of your interviewees.
