JMIC staff Abeer Saady and Marte Hoiby have conducted the first training in safety for journalists and students at Makerere University in Uganda.
Dominic Kango Amos from South Sudan was the local assistant during the training. The 20 participants were journalist students from different levels.
The two day training was focused on risk management, conflict reporting, situation awareness, topical issues in the region and ethical issues – with many examples and exercises.
The participants were enthusiastic in their feedback – most of them rated the training as excellent, and some even wrote that they will be able to train journalists now.
