The training on conflict-sensitive reporting, according to the organisers, seeks to equip media practitioners with specific skills and techniques regarded as essential in analysing conflict and post-conflict related issues in the semi-autonomous region.
“Over the years, it has been UNESCO’s mandate to support journalists dealing with conflict and post-conflict issues. This may also focus on re-building the various media institutions,” Lukosiunas told Sudan Tribune during an interview at Beijing hotel.”
