The Rights Reporter Blog provides you English news updates, articles and videos about rising authoritarian rule in Hungary.
We produce high quality movies and other multimedia content, to document human rights abuses, to educate the public about best practices, to make policy making more accountable and transparent, to chronicle major events of social movements, and to give voice to those people who are marginalised.
We provide training to other NGOs in media and video advocacy. In the past two years, we have trained hundreds of people from all over the world.
We work with the mainstream media to raise awareness on human rights issues that are rarely covered by them from the perspectives of the most affected communities.
We are part of several international networks and run our own Drugreporter Video Advocacy Network and the European Drugpolicy Inititative.
We launch international and national campaigns, focussed on changing drug policies and promoting harm reduction. Most of our campaigns address one of the most outdated global systems, the international drug control system.
Our English language website, Drugreporter, is one of the key regional drug-policy-related news hubs, with a unique online video database, which is constantly growing.
