Representatives of Ukraine’s Key Media Organisations to Participate in Editors Forum in Kiev

Editors Forum titled Reporting Solutions: Covering the Crisis in Ukraine is to take place on 18 March 2015 in Premier Palace (Kyiv).The Forum is part of the project titled Programme to support conflict sensitive media. In Ukraine the project is being realized by International Institute for Regional Media and Information (IRMI, Ukraine) together with Thomson Foundation (the UK) and Journalists’ Initiative Association (JIA, Ukraine). The project is funded by the UK Conflict, Security and Stability Fund. The key aim of the project, which has been underway since November 2014 and will end in late March 2015, is to improve the coverage of IDP-related issues in Ukraine’s media, particularly, in the regions that received the biggest numbers of IDPs. Over the last five months training events for regional journalists have been carried out, devoted to professional and ethical norms of IDPs coverage. Experts, NGOs and volunteer organizations that closely work with IDPs participated in the training events that took place in Kharkiv, Lviv, Poltava and Zaporizhia. Moreover, focused training and editorial assistance was provided to Hromadske TV during their production sessions in Kharkiv, Odessa and Lviv. This work is to result in a documentary about Ukraine’s IDPs. The conference is to host around 30 media managers, representatives of Ukrainian and International organizations that deal with IDP-related issues, media experts and representatives of key international media organizations.  The participants are going to discuss ethical principles of conflict coverage in the media, Ukraine’s crisis as a challenge for the media, regional networking and other issues.
