Freedom of Speech, Economic Prosperity and Good Governance’.
The programme will combine professional development of the values of good journalism (curiosity, rigour, challenge, storytelling, research, doing no harm, and freedom of speech) with an understanding of new opportunities to make reporting more effective and to use new ways to enhance its reach and impact.
This programme will bring together 12 leading media and information practitioners and regulators from 11 countries.
The course is designed to promote vigorous exchange of ideas and experience, and constructive learning, between participants and course leaders, with both seminars and speaker talks, off-site visits and fieldwork.
Fellows will be challenged to discuss evidence-based context for key policy debates, understand international positions (including appreciation of UK approaches), supply practical experience, and encourage dialogue on key issues.
Participants will be expected to participate in individual and group coursework projects, take an active role in their professional and career development, and engage actively throughout the programme and as part of the network.
The curriculum focuses on the ways in which the media are held responsible, and the wider context within which political institutions operate.
The ethics of reporting are at the heart of all debates.
Fellows will participate in six intensive weeks of lectures, visits, and discussions that introduce them to key UK academics, media, and political figures in the field, followed by two weeks of fieldwork research and professional practice.
This will culminate in an interactive day of news events focused on Africa and the UK.
This fellowship programme will commence in September/October next year.
