FREEDOM HOUSE, MRA LAUNCH HUMAN RIGHTS TRAINING FOR NIGERIAN JOURNALISTS
To kick-start the project, Freedom House and Mircea Toma, a Romanian media expert, are visiting Nigeria this month to meet with human rights organisations, journalists and government officials. With the assistance of MRA, Freedom House will be assessing the local media's capacity to cover human rights.
Freedom House will also open an office in Nigeria, headed by project director Dapo Olorunyomi, and conduct workshops on human rights reporting and media content monitoring. Other activities include a World Press Freedom Day panel discussion, which will be held in May 2005.
For more information, contact Dapo Olorunyomi: [email protected]
