For a long time a number of journalists in our international network have been persevering through threats, persecution and restrictions under authoritarian regimes in their home countries. Some of them have had to go into exile in order to keep providing their audiences with independent and accurate information. We stay in solidarity with exiled colleagues who keep their commitment to universal journalistic ethics.
At this moment, strengthening decolonial media practices is also a crucial task for n-ost. Using the power of multiperspectivity that our network provides, we aim to deconstruct colonial narratives and question established power dynamics within media communities. We strive to empower colleagues affected by colonialism. We also invite colleagues who might be (unconsciously) entangled in colonial narratives to join us on our journey of (self)-reflection.
