Thomson Reuters Foundation Reporting on Migration Cambodia 2021
Deadline: October 15, 2021
Applications are open for the Thomson Reuters Foundation Reporting on Migration Cambodia 2021. Thomson Reuters Foundation’s five-day Online ‘Reporting on Migration’ course is a unique chance for journalists from Cambodia to gain practical skills and knowledge and work on their story ideas with guidance from experienced Thomson Reuters journalists.
With support from the Laudes Foundation, the workshop offers a combination of specialist expertise and hands-on training, with an emphasis on producing high-impact stories for widespread dissemination.
As well as coming away with a deep understanding of the scale, nature and causes of the problem, participants will learn about efforts to set global standards for combating modern slavery, including fundamental conventions, international instruments and a new, legally binding protocol that requires countries to take real action. They will discuss the role of media in raising awareness, reducing vulnerability and holding to account governments, law enforcement and businesses. Attendees will look at innovative approaches to fighting trafficking and forced labour and reporting on migration and scrutinise the quest for integrated policy responses across borders.
