Europe and New Zealand: Exchange of Inclusive Journalism Students PDF Print

Published: 9 June 2014

Regions: Europe and Asia-Pacific

journalism_studentsInclusive Journalism Initiative:Reporting Europe and the Asia Pacific is a mobility project between four journalism schools in Europe and New Zealand. Developing inclusive journalism curriculum was one of the recommendations of a study conducted by the Media Diversity Institute (MDI) in partnership with Article 19 and the International Federation of Journalists (IFJ) on how to report ethnicity and religion.

“When it comes to incorporating the idea of inclusive society into the curriculum, universities fall short of offering models that future journalists can use when reporting on diversity issues.

Misogyny Kills PDF Print

Published: 3 June 2014

Country: US

Rodger_photoReporting on the reasons behind the recent shooting in California, media published not only the letter of the young man Elliot Rodger who killed six people and himself, but also supported the misogynist context without questioning the hate message towards women who apparently rejected him. Media present the women exactly how Rodger and so many others saw them: guilty.

“Yes, Rodger was a misogynist. He also very likely had mental difficulties, and to say so doesn't diminish the part a misogynistic culture played in this tragedy. If anything, it emphasises precisely why this culture is so dangerous,” writes Hadley Freeman in the Guardian.

Kureishi: 'Immigrants Have No Face, Status or Story' PDF Print

Published: 2 June 2014

Country: UK

He writes that it is becoming impossible to speak up for the immigrant or, more importantly, hear him speak for him or herself. "Everyone, including the most reasonable and sensitive, has made up their mind that the immigrant is everywhere now and he is too much of a problem.

Kureishi, the Bromley-born son of an immigrant Pakistani father and an English mother, has long placed issues of race and immigration at the heart of his fiction. His first novel, The Buddha of Suburbia, confronted racial politics head on at a time when immigrants were treated as intruders. Read the Guardian Review essay here.
