Abstract

Multiple Component Output I: Human Rights and Media in Ukraine

Rigour
Detailed historical and social research was undertaken while producing this body of work, including field trips and interviews with stakeholders (Ukrainian President’s team, journalists, activists, active citizens). Some interview topics were highly sensitive (sexual rights, recent Russian-Ukrainian conflict), and demanded extra ethical support. Overall, the selection of case studies and their media implications present a comprehensive account of human rights problems and their possible solutions in Ukraine.

Significance
This research is published in the leading international Human Rights resource, Global Information Society Watch, which is circulated among governments and humanitarian organisations worldwide, and helps to bring new voices from underrepresented communities to the global conversations. Each chapter has a conclusion of action points for consideration to various stakeholders, including governments and activist organisations. The author was invited to present her research at International Governance Forum, a leading international meeting for policy dialogue, and actions have been considered as a result of her recommendations. Korolkova was invited to present parts of this research at Languages of Conflict conference funded by Volkswagen Foundation, the largest German nonprofit organization for the promotion of research and education.
