Khaled and Khidher on Human Rights in Erbil

Last Friday we started up a five day course in Erbil to improve the quality of human rights reporting. Journalists from TV, radio, print and human rights groups attend the IMCK training centre. They are trained in human rights and minority rights reporting by IMCK trainers Khaled Sulaiman and Khidher Domle. The participants are taught how to write human and minority rights stories, coming from their own communities. More pictures of this training are to be found on Facebook .
