The five-day program (Aug. 31- Sept. 4) seeks to introduce journalists to the challenges of conflict reporting, help them create a professional network. Attendees will participate in lectures and workshops on conflict journalism, terrorism, defense and security, and tour Jerusalem and other conflict areas. Attendees’ stay in Israel is funded by the program, but does not include airfare. The deadline to apply is May 15.
