Selected journalists will be given a stipend of USD 1,000 to cover expenses for research and travel according to workplans co-developed with APWLD. Their fellowship theme this year is on Feminist Development Justice as they wish to strengthen a feminist analysis on development issues in mainstream and alternative media spaces and galvanise public education and support.

The duration of the fellowship will be from March 2019 – August 2019. During this time period women journalists will have an option to produce news articles, features, audio-video content/documentary or digital stories with a feminist lens that highlight the linkages between gender, economic and development issues and its impact on women’s human rights.

  • APWLD will invite selected women journalists to Thailand for a three (3) day capacity building workshop on women’s human rights and feminist development justice (20 – 22 March 2019). This will be followed by a three (3) day Asia Pacific Peoples’ Forum on Sustainable Development (APPFSD) (24 – 26 March 2019), and the three (3) day UNESCAP Asia Pacific Forum on Sustainable Development (APFSD) (27 – 29 March 2019). While the selected fellows are required to fully participate in the first two meetings, the last meeting organised by UNESCAP will be optional depending on the space availability.
  • At the workshop and the APPFSD, the media fellows will have opportunities to meet women human rights defenders and Feminist Development Justice advocates from Asia Pacific. Based on interactions with grassroots activists and experts, the fellows, in consultation with APWLD, will develop a plan on how to produce critical analysis on women, right to development and feminist development justice.
