The Institute for War and Peace Reporting has teamed up with Radio Tobruk to produce a distinctly Libyan radio show -- Reporting the Transition -- that gives its listeners insights into the workings of the Libyan parliament at a crucial time in the country's history.

The Libyan media is continually under threat, and whatever reporting takes place is usually very partisan. Neutrally minded outlets are often unable to operate due to threats or attacks from people and groups on all sides of the civil conflict.

'Reporting the Transition' aims to give its listeners objective, clear and relevant reporting on a wide variety of local and national issues. The program uses phone-ins and other such initiatives to give listeners unheard-of access to their political representatives.
