Foreign Corres Course In Erbil
Foreign Correspondents Course in Erbil, Iraqi Kurdistan
between 4 – 10 September 2016

Our Media Academy Iraq is offering a five-day course open to both new as well as experienced journalists from around the world. The course will enable 12 journalists to get an insider’s view of Iraqi Kurdistan while honing skills essential to every foreign correspondent.

Participants will spend one week together in Erbil and have the unique opportunity to go on field trips and interview high-ranking actors on the ground, while gaining a better understanding of complex issues routinely encountered in Kurdistan: the fight against ISIS, the situation for refugees and IDPs, human rights issues and the question of a Kurdish state and current Iraqi politics.
