Afghan Journalists Safety Committee (AJSC) is an independent structure dedicated to enhancing safety and protection of Afghan media workers and international reporters working in Afghanistan. AJSC works under the umbrella of Afghanistan New Generation Organization.
AJSC was formed based on the recommendation of Kabul Conference on Freedom of Expression, which was organized in March 2009 by International Media Support (IMS).
AJSC has a board of advisors composed of well-known media workers and civil society activists. AJSC’s executive section has official representatives in eight regions of the country and an unofficial focal point in the remaining 26 provinces. This has enabled AJSC to establish representation throughout the country and provide media workers with necessary help when needed.
