“Transnational Othering – Global Diversities” was launched in Kabul 4th November, hosted by Nai Supporting Open Media in Afghanistan.
The anthology «Transnational Othering – Global Diversities» had its first launch in Depok, a city just outside Jakarta, Indonesia on 30th November, at Universitas Indonesia, the largest university in the country.
This was part of a three day event, including a two day workshop on teaching gender in journalism and media studies.
In 2012, the United Nations issued a resolution on the Promotion, Protection and Enjoyment of Human Rights on the Internet, one of which acknowledged that expressions delivered online received the same protection as offline expression activities. But countless women still experience fear and are threatened when using their freedom of expression rights on the Internet. Female journalists, for example, were recorded to have many negative experiences with online expression.
This is one of the reasons why the Workshop on Teaching Gender in Journalism and Media Studies was held. The event is a collaboration between the Department of Communication at the FISIP Universitas Indonesia, Department of Journalism and Media Studies / Journalism & Media International Center (JMIC), Oslo Metropolitan University, Norway, International Association of Women in Radio and Television (IAWRT), and the Communication Research Center, Institute of Social and Political Research and Development (LPPSP FISIP) Universitas Indonesia.
On the 28th and 29th of September, ARTICLE 19 MENA in collaboration with Journalism & Media International Center (JMIC) at OsloMet – Oslo Metropolitan University in Norway, held a regional training on investigative journalism.
