Deadline: 16 January, 2018
This is an opportunity provided by the Transnational Organized Crime Program.
The Thomson Reuters Foundation has developed a training program for reporting on organized crime for journalists in Africa, in partnership with ENACT (Enhancing Africa’s Response to Transnational Organized Crime).
As part of this program, an intensive five-day workshop will be held in Dakar, Senegal, from Monday, 12 February to Friday, 16 February.
It aims to build the capacity of journalists to investigate the issue of transnational organized crime, improving both their knowledge and skills, while developing reporting ideas that can be further explored by the participants following the workshop. .
Given that organized crime knows no borders, the workshop will focus on cross-border reporting proposals, encouraging collaboration among participants from different countries.
- We are looking for African journalists who are working on transnational organized crime stories with five years of maximum experience OR
- journalists with more years of experience, who have never dealt with this topic before but demonstrate a keen interest in starting to cover the issue.
- Applicants must be based in Africa.
The workshop itself is free. Expenses, including travel, will be covered.
