Yemen Times is organizing a 5-day workshop entitled “Press Coverage of Elections” in cooperation with Friedrich Ebert Stiftung from September 14 till 18 in Sana’a.
The workshop will have Ms. Salwa Charfi, a Tunisian Professor and prominent journalist based in Tunis, as its trainer.
Around twenty five participant journalists representing a wide variety of media organizations will be trained at the workshop, which will focus on professional coverage of elections, neutrality in coverage, in-depth investigative journalism, Internet research methodologies, and other aspects related to elections. This comes as the whole country is looking forward for the upcoming parliamentary elections scheduled for April 2003.
The inauguration of the workshop will be attended by top-ranking officials, pro-human rights organizations, Arab and foreign diplomats, plus a number of intellectuals and interested personalities.
