Oil workshop started
International trainer James Gavin started on Sunday March 27, 2011 a special workshop in the Sulaymaniya training hall of IMCK. For seven days he will give Kurdish reporters more knowledge and background information on oil issues. Specials guests will be invited, like Bnar Salah who works for one of the oil companies active in Kurdistan (photo below, with trainer James Gavin).
The training is meant to help Kurdish media to report in a better and more varied way about oil. Human stories that have a connection to oil in Iraq will get special attention.
Gavin is a specialized journalist from Great Britain. The workshop is made possible with funding from the Open Society Institute.
