Thomson Reuters Foundation: Reports on Transnational Organized Crime Program

Deadline: 16 January 2018

The Thomson Reuters Foundation is inviting African journalists for its program entitled “Reports on Transnational Organized Crime” with an aim to build the capacity of journalists to investigate the issue of transnational organized crime, improving both their knowledge and skills, while developing reporting ideas that can be further explored by the participants following the workshop.

The Foundation has developed a training program for reporting on organized crime for journalists in Africa, in partnership with ENACT (Enhancing Africa’s Response to Transnational Organized Crime).

As part of this program, an intensive five-day workshop will be held in Dakar, Senegal, from Monday, 12 February to Friday, 16 February.

Given that organized crime knows no borders, the workshop will focus on cross-border reporting proposals, encouraging collaboration among participants from different countries.

Benefits

The workshop itself is free. Expenses, including travel, will be covered by ENACT.

  • The foundation is looking for African journalists working on transnational organized crime stories with up to five years of experience OR journalists with more years of experience, who have never dealt with this topic before but demonstrate a keen interest in starting to cover the issue.
