Hi, you might be interested in this opportunity:
The online course “How to Cover Human Trafficking and Modern Slavery”, by the Thomson Reuters Foundation, is a unique opportunity for Mexican journalists to acquire new skills, expand their knowledge, and report on this topic, with the guidance of experienced journalists from the Foundation and experts on the subject.
With the support of the Laudes Foundation, the course combines the knowledge of specialists with practical activities and will focus on the production of high-impact reports. In addition to providing a deeper understanding of the scale and causes of this problem, the workshop will allow journalists to gain insight into how this scourge is being fought globally, including information on international conventions and protocols.
The role of the media in raising public awareness, reducing vulnerabilities, and the responsibility of governments, legislators, and companies will also be discussed. Participants will analyze innovative approaches to combat human trafficking and coverage of migration, reflecting the need for inclusive policy responses that transcend borders.
The course will address, in particular, the ethics of coverage of modern slavery, providing elements to interact with survivors and to overcome the preconceptions and stereotypes of the reporters themselves. Special emphasis will also be placed on aspects related to the safety of journalists, especially when reporting on organized crime.
The deadline to submit applications for this program is 09-Jul-21.
