Around 200 media professionals “communicating” at the Centre
The 2012 edition of the international training activity for media professionals, “Communicating Labour Rights”, will be held on campus from 23 to 27 July 2012 with journalists and information/communication professionals from Africa, Asia and the Caribbean.
By exposing participants to international labour standards, as instruments that represent the international consensus on how a labour problem could be talked at the global level, the training seeks to equip them to handle labour and social issues in an effective way, broadening their news agendas, improving their reporting and analysis and its relevance to readers, viewers and listeners.
Since 2007, the Centre has been implementing this course and has reached almost 200 media professionals coming from more than 70 countries. Linked to this activity, the Centre has been yearly awarding the international journalistic prize “Media for Labour Rights” to the best story mainstreaming international labour standards.
