In order to support research talent in the Philippines, the organizing parties provide an all-catered Research Talent Program for Philippine early-career researchers in the run-up to the conference. The CSJ Research Talent Program, with approximately 15 available slots, consists of, among others, a kick-off write-shop, open to all, on how to write a research abstract, in June 2019; two additional workshops on CSJ research; and, eventually, a sponsorship to participate in the Conference “On Conflict-Sensitive Journalism”. Deadline to apply for the CSJ Talent Program is July 21, 2019.
Here you can find more information about the Research Talent Program.
Conflict-sensitive journalism has been developed as a theoretical and practical framework for media practitioners to cover conflict in a responsible way. It was borne out of the study of journalism, an understanding of conflict science and the experience of hundreds of journalists. With the organizing of an international academic conference, we seek to draw broad lines of inquiry into the discipline, practice and craft of reporting crisis, conflict, and violence, and the context within which reportage unfolds.
