UND journalism professor Richard Shafer has been selected as a 2013 consultant for Freedom House headquartered in New York City. The non-profit organization was founded in 1941 by Wendell Willkie and Eleanor Roosevelt to produce annual reports rating the degree of political freedom and human rights of each country. The print and web-based reports are frequently accessed by political scientists, journalists and policy-makers. Shafer will advise on the state of press systems in newly independent post-Soviet nations in Eastern Europe and Central Asia.
