FREEDOM HOUSE PARTNERS WITH NIGERIAN GROUP TO TRAIN JOURNALISTS
The IFEX member is coordinating two workshops in March with Media Rights Agenda, a local press-freedom group, with the goal of preparing journalists to cover politically sensitive issues.
The workshops will feature discussion groups, case studies and practical fieldwork to strengthen journalists' research and writing skills. Nigerian journalists will also have an opportunity to meet with American counterparts.
The workshops will run in Abuja from 22 to 23 March, 2004, and in Lagos from 25 to 26 March.
Funding is provided by the U.S. State Department Bureau for Educational and Cultural Exchange. Participants from outside Abuja or Lagos can apply for housing and travel funds.
