UNESCO Regional Office for Eastern Africa will support University of Nairobi School of Journalism and Mass Communication to hold a regional workshop to develop training module conflict-sensitive reporting. This module aims at creating a regional center of excellence for specialized journalism training in the East African region and will then be used as a reference point to provide content on this subject at the University level.
This activity is in response to UNESCO’s criteria of Curriculum and Institutional capacity building in order to realize quality journalism.
20 journalism trainers and/or educators in Schools of Journalism and Mass Communication in the East African region will participate in this event.
