Applications are being accepted for the 2011 programme for Balkan journalists, ‘Economic and Political Reporting from Southeast Europe’ jointly run by Robert Bosch Stiftung and Thomson Reuters Foundation.
To foster quality analysis and reporting on economic issues, enhance coverage on topics that are central to the region’s economic and political development and encourage regional networking among journalists, the Robert Bosch Stiftung and the Thomson Reuters Foundation initiated the programme ‘Economic and Political Reporting from Southeast Europe’ in 2007.
Fifteen journalists from the Balkans are competitively chosen to participate in the programme, run by experienced ex-Reuters journalists. The programme includes two 10-day courses in the UK (3-15 April) and in Germany (18-30 September). Participants will also travel to Brussels and Berlin to meet policy-makers and journalists covering European financial and political affairs.
Applying journalists must be citizens of Albania, Bulgaria, Bosnia-Herzegovina, Croatia, Kosovo, Macedonia, Montenegro, Romania, Serbia, or Slovenia. They must have permission from their employer to take part in both parts of the programme. Please apply online on ReutersLink. The deadline for receipt of applications is January 31, 2011.
