Start training for Iraqi Journalists on Ethnic and Religious minorities.

In order to raise awareness among journalists of the importance of minorities in Iraq and Kurdistan, IMCK has started its first (out of three) workshop(s) on minorities in Iraq. Journalist, writer and trainer Sa’ad Salloum opens the first session by introducing the journalists to the different topics that are related to the rich diversity that can be found in Iraq's ethnic, cultural and religious landscape.  Most of the participant are, besides journalist, belonging to a minority group themselves. At this first day, Sa'ad  has lectured on, inter alia, the complexities and problems of  minorities in Iraq, minorities rights in Iraqi law and the possible implications of the International Human Rights Declaration. >IMCK likes to thank the British Foreign & Common Wealth Office and the British Embassy in Iraq for funding this workshop<
