The training is MISA Malawi direct response to the capacity gaps on conflict coverage among journalists in Malawi.

MISA Malawi is calling for Expressions of Interest (EoI) to participate in a five-day virtual training on Conflict-Sensitive Reporting scheduled for July 2,3,4,10 and 11, 2024.

MISA Malawi has organised this training in partnership with DW Akademie, Deutsche Welle’s centre for education, knowledge transfer and media development.

The trainers include DW Akademie’s Sheila Mysorekar, a trainer for conflict-sensitive journalism and consultant for media in post-conflict states and MISA Malawi trainers.

The training on Conflict-Sensitive Reporting is our direct response to the capacity gaps on conflict coverage among media practitioners in Malawi. Among others, the participants will be introduced to the concept of Conflict Sensitive Reporting, Conflict-Sensitive Reporting in the context of elections and physical safety for journalists.

Through this training, we are recognising the urgent need for local media practitioners to gain knowledge and acquire skills on how to cover conflicts without fueling hate and in a way that promotes social dialogue and peace.  The training will also provide guides on how journalists can ensure their safety and security considering the prevailing attacks on journalists.
