The Vaclav Havel Journalism Fellowship is a joint program between the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of the Czech Republic and RFE/RL. President Havel was an ardent supporter of RFE/RL’s mission to promote independent journalism to combat autocracy and dictatorship in the countries of the former Soviet Union. The goal of the fellowship is to support young journalists from RFE/RL’s broadcast region, where media freedom continues to be stifled and where journalism often remains a dangerous profession. The first Havel Fellow was Belarusian journalist and youth activist Franak Viachorka.
