dsc_3703On 20-22 October 2016, the Moldovan Branch of the Romanian Centre for European Policies, in partnership with the Romanian Institute for Action, Training and Peace Research – PATRIR, organized a training course for journalists “Conflict-sensitive reporting”.

Journalists from several regions of the country, including the Autonomous Region of Gagauzia and Transnistria, together with PATRIR experts Andra Tanase and Andrei Trubceac, analyzed the positive role the media plays and can play in conflict situations by discussing the potential of prevention, social binder, mediator and catalyst of the dialogue.

Through interactive teaching methods, the journalists exploited the themes that are part of the basic training of a journalist active in human rights or conflict zone and analyzed the profile of the peace journalist, developing practical skills such as conflict analysis and multi-partial reporting.

At the end of the training, five groups of journalists were formed. They will have a practical exercise of writing a journalistic material and the group of journalists with the best article will follow an internship in a media institution in Chisinau.
