HRD, Journalist
Radio Pole FM

Rozenn Kalafulo is a journalist working for Radio Pole FM, a radio station affiliated with the Institut Interculturel Dans la Région des Grands Lacs - Pole Institute (Intercultural Institute In the Great Lakes Region – Pole Institute). The Institute was created in 1997 and has since been active in the promotion and defence of human rights, with a view to promoting peace, good governance and democratic change. Radio Pole FM has also been a public advocate of human rights in the DRC, and has publicly denounced human rights abuses in the State.


The situation in eastern DRC is especially precarious. A number of human rights defenders and journalists have been killed over the years. The killings and persistent threats have instilled a climate of fear among local defenders, who are made more vulnerable by the ongoing violence, ethnic tensions, and the unstable political and military situation in the region.
