Seminar for Journalists: India’s Foreign Policy and the Media

Seminar for Journalists: India’s Foreign Policy and the Media
Today’s young journalists need the knowledge and skills necessary to report accurately, reliably and with context on events and issues related to India's national security interests and objectives.
National Security comprises several critical sectors, one of the important ones being India’s Foreign Policy.
Journalists, reporters as well as editors at the desk, need to understand what Diplomacy is, how it functions, what its role and contemporary form are, and how India is positioning itself today on the world stage and conducting its foreign policy.
To help young journalists become better informed, the Press Institute of India, Chennai, an independent non-profit trust focused on sustaining high and responsible standards of journalism, the Institute of Contemporary Studies Bangalore, a multi-expertise think-tank specalising in national security and foreign policy affairs, and the Observer Research Foundation, Chennai, a not-for-profit organisation that examines the critical problems facing India and helps develop coherent policy responses, will conduct a two-day seminar titled India’s Foreign Policy and the Media, where foremost experts and senior journalists will offer perspective and share experiences.
This, the third in a series of National Security workshops, will be held on 23-24th January 2015 at the Press Institute of India, Chennai. The seminar will aim to equip young journalists with knowledge and skills to report on foreign policy and national security issues in ways that have relevance and meaning to a variety of audiences. The overall objective is to better empower the journalist.
