The Hannah Arendt Initiative supports journalists who are at risk, for example in Afghanistan.
Totalitarian regimes impede the work of journalists all over the world. Germany's Hannah Arendt Initiative is a civil-society network that supports at-risk media professionals from Afghanistan, Belarus, Russia and Ukraine.
It was launched in 2022 by the Federal Foreign Office and the Federal Government Commissioner for Culture and the Media. Andrea Marshall is project manager for 'Displacement and Dialogue South Asia' at the Deutsche Welle Academy. In the 'Space for Freedom' project, which is part of the Hannah Arendt Initiative, she campaigns for Afghan journalists in exile.
