International Program for Journalists – Berlin, Germany

Deadline: September 20, 2015

The “Media – partners on the move for democracy, transparency and exchange” is a nine-day program in Berlin organised by the Berlin School of Journalism for journalists from six Eastern Partnership countries. It is supported by the German Federal Foreign Office program “strengthening cooperation with civil society in the Eastern Partnership countries”. The program aims to help participants gain insights concerning German media and the political system of the Federal Republic of Germany.

The program will include lectures and excursions. Participants will also visit institutions and NGOs, which are active in the Eastern Partnership countries, specifically in the media sector. They will work together on articles to be published or broadcasted in the media they are working for at home and on a program web page. By spending time and working together, the journalists can share knowledge of their nation’s media, exchange their experiences and expectations and form networks.
