The Human Rights and Journalism course will cover a range of topics related to the field of journalism and reporting, looking at the principles and practicalities relating to journalism in different contexts, including in conflict zones, in authoritarian regimes, and in populist democracies.
Taught by Steve Crawshaw, an experienced former foreign correspondent, author and senior human rights advocate, the programme runs over four days. It consists of a mixture of lectures, discussions and interactive exercises.
The course seeks to provide participants with an introduction to ways of addressing the ethical and practical challenges of working in an increasingly complex world, where information is argued over, and where the stakes can be very high.
All participants who successfully complete the course will receive a University of Essex, Human Rights Centre certificate. The design of the course requires limiting enrolment to a maximum of 20 participants.
