Networks for Democracy Enhancement and Reporting in Palestine – FINDER


From June 2013 to June 2015

The FINDER project aimed at enhancing democratic structures through a capacitated Palestinian media sector enabled to exercise its role as an independent watchdog and source for reliable information.

These outcomes were achieved through a variety of capacity building measures targeted student journalists, media professionals and CSOs, who participated in trainings, the conducting of in-depth investigative reporting, and awareness raising activities to trigger nationwide discussions.

Based on expert planning sessions, a new investigative journalism curriculum was developed for Al-Quds University media students, along with training manuals in investigative reporting and new media for journalists and CSOs. The investigative reports resulting from the university course and training sessions were used to stimulate discussions at a series of town hall meetings, which were broadcasted on local television and Ma’an satellite channel. The students, journalists and CSO trainees moreover formed an investigative reporters’ network with a website and online platform to exchange ideas and support. Called “FINDER”

The FINDER project is funded by the United Nations Democracy Fund – UNDEF
