No Pakistani journalists are currently based in India, nor are any Indian journalists based in Pakistan. Beginning in 2015, the East-West Center has organized ongoing cross-border journalism exchanges, reporting trips, and dialogues between Pakistan and India. This program’s overall objectives are to: (1) facilitate cross-border professional journalist exchanges through reporting trips and dialogues; (2) foster long-term professional relationships among Indian and Pakistani journalists and media organizations; (3) improve regional news coverage through objective, fact-based, first-hand reporting; and (4) instill cross-border media collaboration in the next generation of journalists through journalism student and faculty exchanges.
