The EJN’s impact 2017-18
In Africa, the EJN’s programme of activities included sessions on improving how ethics and journalism are taught at universities and other teaching institutions, with representatives from universities in Kenya and Nigeria.
EJN Programme Report for 2016
At the Federation of Africa Journalists conference in Abuja, Nigeria, the EJN Africa representative Rachael Nakitare made a detailed presentation on the Africa sections of the Moving Stories report and the EJN’s 5-point test for hate speech. The EJN was able to support colleagues from Uganda, Kenya, Rwanda and Burundi to attend the session. This action and an earlier event in Nairobi (plus a regional conference in Uganda, see below) has further extended EJN support in Africa and paved the way for a new programme in 2017.
