Azeri journalists to produce articles on diversity Print

Date: 13-22 October 2009

Region/Country: Azerbaijan

Eight young Azeri journalists will participate in a production orientated training event, organised by the Media Diversity Institute in Baku between October 13-22, 2009. With help from experienced UK and local tutors, they will produce articles on diversity issues, to be placed in leading Azeri newspapers in the form of a supplement.

The course is part of a 2-year project, jointly managed by Article 19 and MDI, designed to strengthen freedom of expression (FoE) in Azerbaijan through advocacy for legal reform, in particular abolition of criminal defamation, and capacity building of the media. The project is funded by the UK Foreign and Commonwealth Office.
