The workshop is open to all journalists interested to meet and exchange ideas with colleagues from Afghanistan, Bangladesh, Egypt, Iran, Nigeria, Pakistan, Russia, Somalia and Syria who participate in the Neue deutsche Medienmacher’s trainee program for exiled journalists and journalists with migrant background. Hostwriter supports the program as a cooperation partner.
We aim to foster connections between journalists from Germany and colleagues in German exile. Most local journalists have access to media outlets but might lack language skills like Arabic or Farsi. Reporters in exile have much needed language skills and knowledge but might lack contacts into the German media scene. By bringing together exiled and local journalists, we explore possibilities for collaborative research that both sides can profit from.
