Deadline: 7 June 2019
To prepare news professionals worldwide to cover refugee and migrant children and families with greater knowledge, depth, and skills, the Dart Center is now accepting applications for a journalism training workshop focused on children and the international refugee crisis.
This workshop, to be held September 19-22, 2019 at the Columbia University Graduate School of Journalism, is designed for local, regional and international reporters across diverse beats touching refugees, migration and children: education, public health, politics, policy, as well as particular refugee and borders crises.
The four-day workshop will bring journalists together with internationally-recognized scientists, policy experts, and practitioners from the field of early childhood development to discuss the effects of trauma on developing brains, the special early-childhood issues raised by displacement and family separation, and evidence-based interventions that support nurturing care amid adversity. The workshop will also offer journalist-to-journalist discussions of craft and ethics, source development, and collaboration among participants, as well as best practices for telling compelling stories about this profoundly vulnerable population.
