Supporting Journalists, South Sudan

Country / date: South Sudan (2011)

Partner: Norwegian People’s Aid

Project objective(s): Input to the development of a 5-year strategic plan for the Union of Journalists of South Sudan (UJOSS), an industry organisation struggling with funding and administrative issues.

Project outcome(s): Integrity conducted interviews with journalists and editors in the capital, Juba, as well as key regional towns such as Torit, Wau and Malakal, to assess existing capabilities, key challenges, and journalist expectations of the Union. The research showed that the majority
of journalists and editors lacked even basic training,and frequently suffered from
threats and harassment from the government and security forces. Lack of transport and equipment were also discovered to be serious problems. Following discussion with both the client and key stakeholders from the UJOSS, our findings were used to inform their strategic planning.
