The Center for Journalism in Extreme Situations (Russian: Центр экстремальной журналистики) is a press advocacy group in Russia. Founded in 2000 as part of the Russian Union of Journalists, the center is the primary media watchdog in the country and produces a variety of publications, including the weekly bulletin of media news and commentary Dangerous Profession.[1]

The Center's director, Oleg Panfilov, warned against a proposition in Russia to arm journalists following the January 2009 murder of Novaya Gazeta reporter Anastasia Baburova and human rights attorney Stanislav Markelov.[2]

In early 2012, the work of the Center was stopped by the efforts of its board and founder, the Russian Union of Journalists.
