Call for “Media, Minorities and Migration” programme

Deadline: 26 September, 2019

 

Minority rights and migration are major issues in the world today. This exciting new project will offer journalists, journalism students and students from social sciences and humanities interested in journalism in Bulgaria, Hungary, Poland and Slovakia the chance to learn how to source important stories relating to these issues, how to get coverage for them and counter the dominant anti-migrant narratives in the media.

 

Organisers want to raise public awareness in the four countries of poverty, migration and exclusion of minority communities, and we can’t do this without working with journalists. Through various education opportunities, training schemes, graduate internships, stipends and awards, the project team will strengthen the capacity of journalists and journalism students to report sensitively on those issues and promote positive attitudes towards migrants and refugees across the general public.

 

Are you a journalist? Interested in covering migration and minorities? Apply for the next round of “Media, Minorities and Migration” programme! Applications are now open, deadline is: 26 September.

 

The programme includes a free 8-week online course, internships, media grants and even field trips to Europe and Africa.
