Kategorie: Die Anderen

Applications are being accepted for the 2013 programme for journalists from Southeast Europe, 'Economic and Political Reporting from Southeast Europe' jointly run by Robert Bosch Stiftung and Thomson Reuters Foundation.

New: for the first time, we are accepting applications from Greece and Turkey for the programme.

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.

Sixteen journalists from Southeast Europe are competitively chosen to participate in the programme, run by experienced ex-Reuters journalists. The programme includes two 10-day courses in the UK (13-27 April) and in Germany (15-28 September). Participants will also travel to Brussels and Frankfurt to meet policy-makers and journalists covering European financial and political affairs.

Applying journalists must be citizens of Albania, Bulgaria, Bosnia-Herzegovina, Croatia, Greece, Kosovo, Macedonia, Montenegro, Romania, Serbia, Slovenia or Turkey. They must have permission from their employer to take part in both parts of the programme.
