Human Rights Handbook for Journalists in Timor-Leste = Manual Direitus Umanus Ba Jornalista sira iha Timor-Leste

The Human Rights Handbook for Journalists in Timor-Leste is designed to take the reader through some valuable background on human rights principles, provide local context on the human rights situation in Timor-Leste as well as practical tips on human rights reporting. The purpose of the book is to serve both as a textbook for journalism students and practical tool that can be used by reporters already working in the media.

This publication is born with the firm belief that media is indispensable in raising awareness about people’s basic rights and strengthening democratic institutions. Journalists must therefore have an understanding of legal frameworks, both national and international, knowledge of human rights issues and international standards, and the ability to communicate complex information about these issues to the public in an informed and documented way.

This publication is part of an ongoing joint initiative of Timor-Leste Media Development Center, United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization and United Nations Integrated Mission in Timor-Leste to strengthen the capacity of the media in Timor-Leste.
