The course is committed to developing young people from disadvantaged, underprivileged and underdeveloped regions into influencing the profession of journalism and media work through peace and development reporting. Peace and development reporting uses media work to empower poorer, excluded, regions and communities to tell their stories, to enhance and enjoy the rights to information, basic opportunities and facilities for human development, clean governance and democracy, ecological sustainability and conflict free environment. Investigative journalistic projects for peace and development use and produce print, radio and visual materials to enquire into the above aspects for social responsibility and public interest. I am happy to attach for you the brochure of the course.
