Training for journalists in London


The Thomson Reuters Foundation, London, the charitable arm of Reuters, will be running a seminar in London for journalists from across the world. We have been asked to alert journalists about this seminar and encourage them to apply to take part.

The seminar, held on 22 – 24 October 2014, will focus on how to cover sensitive terrorism and security issues. The Thomson Reuters Foundation are seeking to engage journalists who have to confront these issues, including how certain groups may be associated with terrorism in some societies and what can be done to address this.

Further information is available here:

The application deadline is 30 June 2014. Some funding will apparently be available from the Thomson Reuters Foundation for flights and accommodation.

Applicants should have at least five years’ journalistic experience working in print, broadcast or online media. You should be completely fluent in written and spoken English.Obama Press
