For journalists from the US and Asian countries with large Muslim populations
The Senior Journalists Seminar is a dialogue, travel and exchange program for journalists from the United States and Asian countries with substantial Muslim populations, specifically Bangladesh, India, Indonesia, Malaysia, Singapore and Pakistan. The seminar offers an opportunity for senior writers, reporters, editors, columnists and producers to engage their peers on issues that have hurt relationships between these Asian countries and the United States, especially since 9/11.
In each of the study-tour destinations, participants will meet with government officials, community and religious leaders, local journalists and others to gain greater understanding of the diverse perspectives on these issues. The study tour will begin and conclude at the East-West Center in Honolulu where Asian and American journalists will meet together. Participant-led discussions during these sessions will focus on the political and cultural challenges journalists face in reporting on contemporary Asia-U.S. relations.
Working journalists from Bangladesh, India, Indonesia, Malaysia, Singapore, Pakistan, and the United States with at least 10 years of experience are eligible to apply. More information>>>
