Young Moroccan journalists invited to 'inclusive journalism' workshop

Posted on: 28/05/2009 Basic Journalism, Young Journalists Country: Morocco

Young journalists in Morocco are invited to take part in a training workshop in "inclusive journalism," to be held in Rabat from July 9 to 11.

The workshop is offered by the UK-based Media Diversity Institute. It will be led by Richard Cookson, a journalist working for UK TV Channel 4, and the Moroccan journalist Mounia Belafia, who contributes to Al Arabiya and France 24.

Among the topics to be discussed: the importance of giving voices to all segments of the society, not only the mainstream; the importance of alternative sources (not only official ones); basic principles of reporting diversity; managing prejudice, avoiding stereotypes and the use of language; and the importance of building bridges with civil society.

The workshop forms part of the Young Reporters’ Diversity Network segment of MDI’s 2-year training program, designed to promote inclusive journalism in Morocco.
