Mid-career journalists are invited to apply for an eight-day training course on Global Economic Governance: African Perspectives, to be held in Johannesburg from December 3 – 10, 2012. This training is offered by SAIIA, the Institute for the Advancement of Journalism (IAJ), the Centre for Human Rights at the University of Pretoria (CHR), and the Deutsche Gesellschaft für Internationale Zusammenarbeit (GIZ).
The programme addresses mid-career journalists from newspapers, news agencies, online media and radio stations based in African countries. The course will be conducted in English – so competence in spoken and written English is essential.
The course aims at promoting understanding of South Africa’s advocacy of African continental interests in the G20 and BRICS – and the impact of IMF/World Bank policies on African countries, thereby enhancing the quality of trade journalism at media houses across Africa. Only 15 carefully-selected participants will be admitted. They should have at least 5 years of professional experience on the job.

Closing date for applications: Monday, 5 November, 2012.
