EUCAM Research Fellow
Areas of expertise: multimedia journalism, vulnerable communities, and political development
My name is Nigora Fazliddin. I hold a MA degree in international journalism from Tajik University. While I began my career in print media, after interning in the United States, I transitioned from print media to multimedia.
I work as a multimedia journalist and documentarian with Radio Free Europe/Radio Liberty’s Tajik service known as Radio Ozodi in Dushanbe. I primarily focus on poverty, vulnerable communities such as women, children, refugees and labour migrants. One of my more recent investigative reports detailed the life and activities of a Tajik national who was appointed by the Taliban to be in charge of five Afghan provinces bordering with Tajikistan. Not only did this report receive an award as the best report among the 27 different services of Radio Liberty, but it also was republished by leading international media, including CNN, VOA, Reuters, France Press.
At EUCAM, I seek to strengthen my research skills by looking through a think tank lens at the topics of my interest as a journalist. My current research focus is on migration of young people from Central Asia to Europe.
