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. This is about to change, thanks to Inclusive Journalist Initiative”, says Associate Professor Verica Rupar, head of the Auckland University of Technology (AUT) journalism programme who is also an academic consultant for MDI.
