Workshops on press, police and politics

International trainer Kees Schaepman and IMCK trainer Ako Mohammed started a series of two day workshops for journalists, on the relationship between press, police and politicians. Part of the training will focuss on Codes of Conduct. Afternoons will be used for discussions with a politician and a member of the assaish, the Kurdish security police.

Schaepman started the training in Erbil, and will move later to Duhok for more workshops on the subject. In 2011 the same workshops are planned for Sulaymaniya. Participants are from all media in Kurdistan.

The workshops, which have been organised to end violence against journalists and to decrease the animonity between press and both police and politics, have been funded by the American RRT in Erbil.
