Training for Journalists Covering Internally Displaced People to Take Place in Odessa

25-26 May a training titled “Professional and ethical norms in covering IDP issues” is to take place in Odessa for journalists that cover IDP-related issues in their newsrooms.

The training is to take place within the project titled “A programme to support conflict sensitive media reporting in Ukraine’s regions” that is being realized in Ukraine by International Institute for Regional Media and Information (IRMI -Ukraine), Thomson Foundation (the UK) and Journalists’ Initiative Association (the JIA, Ukraine). The project is financially supported by the UK Conflict, Stability and Security Fund. 

The project started last November. Since then around a hundred of journalists representing leading regional and central media in Kharkiv, Lviv, Poltava, Zaporizhia and Dnipropetrovsk became its participants. Reporters had an opportunity to discuss professional issues with their colleagues, trainers, and representatives of volunteer and key international organizations as well as state officials.  Editors Forum within the project took place in Kyiv in March 2015 and gathered senior journalists and media managers from over 20 print, broadcast and online news organizations.  Moreover, in Kharkiv and Lviv consultations with local editors were held with participation of IRMI and Thomson Foundation experts.

The representatives of officially registered media outlets are welcome to participate.

The organizers cover travel (for participants from other cities), meals and accommodation during the training.
