Differences between Kurdistan and West
IMCK director and senior trainer Judit Neurink conducted a lecture for the news staff of Kurdistani Nwe in Sulaymaniya, on December 2, 2010. She talked about the differences between media in the West, and those in Kurdistan.
Main differences, she said, are the fact that most journalists in Kurdistan feel they have a political role, and that most media have a connection to political parties. And this leads to content in the media that mainly cover politics. Western media focuss much more on people stories, and work with civil journalism.
