The SCORP Newsletter: a new format! (and a new platform)

Public Relations and Communication have been a trademark for the Standing Committee on Human Rights and Peace, where huge efforts and elaborate plans have been dedicated towards developing the most effective and sustainable platforms to empower the members and make their work visible. 

The SCORP Newsletter has been one of our several platforms that was introduced over the years in our Standing Committee. It was created to provide the SCORPions with a space to share their ideas, express themselves; promote their work, and to bring them closer to the international work updates.

Today, as we're striving for more transparency and accountability of the International Team on one hand, and more visibility of the work of our SCORPions on the other, we have decided to make  the SCORP newsletter a monthly publication with a new format:
  • The SCORP Insights: the SCORP insights will continue being published through the same platform and shared both in the SCORP Facebook Group and on the email server. However, the content will be almost exclusively about the international updates.
  • The SCORPions' Blog: the SCORPions blog will be shared monthly on our SCORP database website, containing all the SCORPions-related previous sections of the newsletter, but with a little bit more liberty and space to share more contributions. The call will be open in the beginning of every month is getting bigger!

Because communication is crucial, and because we value our members' input, ideas and feedback, we have been working on, over the past months, to develop the SCORP Database to be more of an interactive platform that brings SCORPions together. 
Sooo... we are happy to share with you the new Communication Hub:
