Thomson Reuters Foundation’s Reporting on Human Trafficking and Modern-Day Slavery in Nigeria (Fully Funded)-See Application Guide Welcome to Stevo Portal
Application Deadline: October 1st 2019
The global trade in human beings is bigger
today than at any time in history. Estimates of the numbers of people
caught in modern slavery vary from 21 million to 36 million in an
industry worth more than $150 billion in illegal profits a year. The
world’s refugee crisis now involves 68 million people displaced from
their homes, a record high. It’s one of the biggest stories of our time.
Yet a lot of reporting on trafficking and forced labour is mired in
cliché, myth and misconception. It often lacks nuanced understanding of
the causes of the scourge and the tools to fight it.
Thomson Reuters Foundation’s one-week Reporting on Human Trafficking and Modern-Day Slavery in Nigeria is a unique chance for journalists in West Africa to gain practical skills and knowledge and work on your story ideas with guidance from experienced Thomson Reuters Foundation journalists and subject experts from reputed anti-trafficking charities.
The workshop offers a combination of specialist expertise and hands-on training, with an emphasis on producing high-impact stories for widespread dissemination.
As well as coming away with a deep understanding of the scale, nature and causes of the problem, participants will learn about efforts to set global standards for combating modern slavery, including fundamental conventions, international instruments and a new, legally binding protocol that requires countries to take real action.
This is an opportunity to pick
the brains of reporters who have done extraordinary investigative work
or ground-breaking reportage that has changed policy, provoked public
outcry or brought traffickers to justice. Attendees will also spend time
with experts and those at the coal face of the anti-slavery movement
and migration crisis, including some who have been trafficked themselves
and gone on to help others move from “victims” to “survivors”.
Applicants must be Indian full-time journalists or
regular contributors to media organisations in West Africa. Applicants
must be able to demonstrate a commitment to a career in journalism in
their country, must be a senior journalist with a minimum of three
