Regional Voices was focused on addressing social tensions resulting from the conflict in Ukraine through better, more ethically balanced coverage of the issues that affected those who have been forced to leave their homes, the internally displaced persons (IDPs). More than a thousand regional journalists, media managers and civil society organisations took part in the project which aimed to increase coverage of IDP issues and produce reports which were neutral and conflict sensitive.
