The Swedish Section of Reporters Without Borders assisting asylum seeking journalists.

When contacted by asylum seekers Reporters Without Borders uses its network to verify that they are journalists and have been threatened. We ask them to provide the contact details of colleagues so that we can get in touch with them and compare what they say with the information we get from our own sources. We only support journalists after establishing that they have been threatened in connection with their journalistic activities.

All asylum applicants are asked to complete RSF`s assistance request form. In contacting RSF for assistance, you can expedite your request by sending a completed request form. All information is confidential.

Due to the high volume of requests, we are not able to respond to everyone who needs our help.
